Hi Louis. Be sure to bring plenty of questions. Doug will be guiding the discussion and sharing some research but having some big picture and also more specific questions to kick things off will be a great way of assuring a lively conversation.

Can't wait for the chat, Shawn. One, I'd love to pick Doug's brains on data management in general and two, I'm really interested in what everybody has to say about the data scientist role. There's a lot of discussion and so many different ideas floating around out there about what a data scientist is and the role these folks need to play  -- I wonder if we can come to some sort of consensus.

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
