Pricing Algorithmic Insurance

  title={Pricing Algorithmic Insurance},
  author={Dimitris Bertsimas and Agni Orfanoudaki},
As machine learning algorithms start to get integrated into the decision-making process of companies and organizations, insurance products will be developed to protect their owners from risk. We introduce the concept of algorithmic insurance and present a quantitative framework to enable the pricing of the derived insurance contracts. We propose an optimization formulation to estimate the risk exposure and price for a binary classification model. Our approach outlines how properties of the…

Asset Pricing Models and Insurance Ratemaking

Abstract This paper provides an introduction to asset pricing theory and its applications in non-life insurance. The first part of the paper presents a basic review of asset pricing models, including

Actuarial versus Financial Pricing of Insurance

This article discusses issues common to the pricing of both insurance and finance. These include increasing collaboration between insurance companies and banks, deregulation of various insurance and

Value at Risk

The main business of banks and insurance companies is risk. Banks and financial institutions lend money, running the risk of losing the lended amount, and they borrow “short money” having less risk

Quantitative Risk Management: Concepts, Techniques and Tools Revised edition

This book provides the most comprehensive treatment of the theoretical concepts and modelling techniques of quantitative risk management. Whether you are a financial risk analyst, actuary, regulator

The Price of Interpretability

This paper introduces a mathematical framework in which machine learning models are constructed in a sequence of interpretable steps and quantifies the ``price'' of interpretability, i.e., the tradeoff with predictive accuracy.

Machine Learning Interpretability: A Survey on Methods and Metrics

A review of the current state of the research field on machine learning interpretability while focusing on the societal impact and on the developed methods and metrics is provided.

Quantifying Interpretability and Trust in Machine Learning Systems

A trust metric is derived that identifies when human decisions are overly biased towards ML predictions and demonstrates the value of interpretability for ML assisted human decision making.

The Price of Robustness

An approach is proposed that flexibly adjust the level of conservatism of the robust solutions in terms of probabilistic bounds of constraint violations, and an attractive aspect of this method is that the new robust formulation is also a linear optimization problem, so it naturally extend to discrete optimization problems in a tractable way.

On Robots and Insurance

The essential issues that lawyers, economists and engineers need to address in their future research in order to overcome current limitations and ultimately develop efficient and adequate risk management tools are identified.
