Share Machine Learning and AI for Financial Professionals : 4-week Online Course

Event Details

The use of data science and machine learning in the investment industry is increasing. Financial firms are using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to augment traditional investment decision making. The CFA institute is recognizing the changes in the industry and is introducing Fintech, AI and machine learning concepts in its curriculum. CFA Society San Francisco in partnership with QuantUniversity is pleased to offer a course in Machine Learning and AI primarily geared towards CFA charterholders, CFA candidates, and investment professionals.

In this workshop, we bring clarity on how AI and machine learning are revolutionizing financial services. We will introduce key concepts and, through examples and case studies, will illustrate the role of machine learning, data science techniques, and AI in the investment industry. Rather than just showing how to write code or run experiments in Python, we will provide an intuitive understanding to machine learning with just enough mathematics and basic statistics.
