Deep Learning ventures into territory associated with Artificial Intelligence. This course will demonstrate how neural networks can improve practice in various disciplines, with examples drawn primarily from financial engineering. Students will gain an understanding of deep learning techniques, including how alternate data sources such as images and text can advance practice within finance.

  • Prerrequisitos:

    The course is intended for financial professionals (analysts, portfolio managers, traders, quants, advisers) and other practitioners with an interest in finance. Solid programming skills are advised; knowledge of Python is an advantage. Students should also have knowledge of basic probability, statistical techniques (including linear regression), calculus; linear algebra. A background (perhaps through the first course of this series) in Classical Machine Learning is helpful but not mandatory.
