ABSTRACT
In this article, the author reports that smaller insurance companies in the property/casualty insurance market in the U.S. have taken back some ground due to the power and benefits of predictive analytics. The author says that insurers have recognized the important and essential role of quality data and analytics and they are now receiving the bulk of analytic resources from larger and smaller companies alike.

    Visual methods have been extensively studied and performed in cluster data analysis. Given a pairwise dissimilarity matrix D of a set of n objects, visual methods such as Enhanced-Visual Assessment Tendency (E-VAT) algorithm generally represent D as an n x n image I(DÌ…) where the objects are...
