Machine Learning in Finance

The popularity of data science techniques such as machine learning has grown enormously in recent years. They present effective solutions to process and analyze the huge amount of data available to risk managers and financial analysts.

With the advances in computing power and distributed processing, it is now possible to process - and make sense of - the vast array of information that can be gathered from several different data sources.

This course focuses on advanced data science techniques that are becoming widely used in financial markets for text analysis and artificial intelligence: Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Deep Learning (DL).

The program is delivered entirely through workshops and case studies. Participants will learn how to implement natural language processing techniques by building a sentiment analysis model to analyze text strings. In the deep learning section, participants will focus on the construction and testing of a neural network to solve a financial problem with the help of Python API / Keras.
