The Modeling the Future Challenge (MFC) is a new academic competition being developed by The Institute of Competition Sciences for the Actuarial Foundation (TAF). The premise is simple. Students are challenged to develop and present their own mathematical models describing how they envision a new technology or industry will change the future.
Successful submissions to the MFC will provide findings supported by mathematical computations. Through this challenge, students will apply mathematics to better understand cutting-edge industries and technologies. They will also learn about how to access highly sought after career opportunities as actuaries and other math related fields.
The 2017-2018 challenge topic is on Autonomous Vehicles, one of the fastest moving, exciting, and game-changing technologies of our time. The information in the pages below will provide you with the nuts and bolts of the Modeling the Future Challenge.
