Chief Data Science Officer

Antoine Ly

“Knowing, is not demonstrating nor explaining. It is access to vision” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry I put knowledge sharing and learning at the center of the team & company development. I contribute to the company growth by acting and sharing those key values that benefit to innovation, self-development and value-added deliveries. Having a mathematical background, I am sensitive to the application of research and technologies to answer business and real life issues by following software engineering best practices. My work as well as the volunteer organisation “Data Science Game” allow me to achieve my goal in making academics and industries working together. I have an international experience by working with different markets. Got some experience with US during my 5 first years at Milliman and I have been extending it to Europe and Asia within SCOR thanks to my current global position. I am curious and like to understand the topic I am dealing with. That is why leading does not prevent me from putting my hands on tools and technologies. Having an experience in software development, understanding statistical and machine learning models as well as having a consulting experience help me to exchange and synchronize different parties involved in “AI” or disruptive projects. I have experiences to share in Machine Learning and applications to Insurance Industry. I am always fully committed in what I do. I am team player. I am a fully qualified actuary and Ph.D in mathematics “Machine Learning Algorithms applied to insurance: solvency, textmining, anonymisation and transparency”. I also hold an engineering background in statistics and economy with a double degree (Master) in computer science (specialized in AI).

The reinsurance industry is about combining technical expertise and experience with the developments of science.
