Abstract—The factors that influence fire insurance continue to grow and head to the problem of big data. It is necessary to develop a model to predict the loss cost due to fires by examining the state-of-art models which are adaptable to the big data. One of the models is deep learning, which is an extension of the neural network. This model shows good performances for unstructured data such as image and text. In this paper, we examine the deep learning for loss cost prediction in fire insurance whose training data is tabular or structured data. We use one of the deep learning architectures called deep neural network (DNN), which consists of two or more hidden layers. Our simulation shows that DNN gives quite a similar accuracy to the standard shallow learning of the neural network. It means that deep learning does not improve the performance of the standard shallow learning of neural network for the structured or tabular data of loss cost prediction in fire insurance.
