Abstract: MassMutual is a Fortune 100 company based in Springfield that provides life insurance products and retirement services. The MassMutual data science group, primarily located in Amherst, focuses on expanding the role of data-driven analyses, strategies, and technologies throughout the organization. In a series of five short presentations, we will describe efforts on five distinct data science tasks: (1) forecasting sales, (2) proactively identifying disgruntled customers, (3) predicting lab values from prescription drug histories, (4) increasing customer engagement in an online tool, and (5) estimating group-level risk for pension plans.
