About the course

This interactive learning event brings together an industry expert and course participants to focus on the intersection between machine learning and finance. Participants will discover the many applications of novel machine learning methods in risk management, focusing primarily on supervised learning models, neural nets and deep learning. 

Learn best practices for the integration of data science into a financial institution through active discussion and Q&As. Frequent challenges will be addressed regarding anomaly detection, lack of AI explainability and classifying a highly imbalanced dataset. Participants will come away with the necessary knowledge to measure the performance of machine learning models used for effective risk management. 

A basic understanding of statistics and data manipulation is required for participation in this event.
