    #4 Predictive modelling as applied in insurance is about understanding risk (or propensity). Actuarial science is typically focused on trying to understand forward liability. Unless an insurance provider understands this and has the asset backing to cover the liability, then the scheme is no better than a pyramid selling ponzi scheme. The concept of forward liability is being applied more generally in the social sector. It can be thought of as an indicator of the lost opportunity caused by social services delivery failure. Reduction in this forward liability also delivers increased contribution to society. The term "Social Investment" has been coined and is becoming a focus of Governments as different as those of New Zealand and France.

    Jeffrey, good coverage of the history and approaches. My experience in this field starting a little earlier than yours and rooted in operations research, is that people confuse using models to explain the past, and using models as input to processes that aim to change outcomes. A model that has had it's hubcaps polished till they are really shiny may not deliver in producing desired results when it is plugged into the decision / action process. Simulation plays an important part in my view. Many model development methodologies have overlooked this.

    I'm an honors graduate, was even invited into a scholar laureate program. BUT, and this BUT is huge, statistics is my nemesis! Jeffrey Strickland can get even my statistically illiterate brain to understand Predictive Modeling as well as all the other wonderful mathematical magic he performs.

    Interesting post, @Jeffrey Strickland. During my underwriting days Predictive Modeling was used in our analyzing of a client's risk. It was programmed into the rating portion that determined the appropriate premium for the client's operations. I believe most insurance companies use Predictive Modeling today.

    One of my future learning goals is to take a statistics and also a business analysis night school course at my local college. In this age I recognize that improving my statistical thinking is just as relevant as recognizing design thinking skills are important. I will also follow your twitter account at https://twitter.com/stricklandjs via my @rupyyuan account, which is set up for my own personal learning purposes. I have included you in my Statbusters grouping (list function) https://twitter.com/RupyYuan/lists/spectraneuron-e1-4
