Learn how artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are revolutionizing financial services — this course will introduce key concepts and illustrate the role of machine learning, data science techniques, and AI through examples and case studies from the investment industry. The presentation uses simple mathematics and basic statistics to provide an intuitive understanding of machine learning, as used by financial firms, to augment traditional investment decision making.
This deep-dive session discusses core methods and applications to provide an understanding of supervised and unsupervised machine learning. Participants will be introduced to advanced topics that include time series analysis, reinforcement learning, anomaly detection, and natural language processing. Case studies will also examine how to predict interest rates and credit risk with alternative data sets and how to analyze earning calls from EDGAR using Natural Language Processing Techniques.
