This course is a dense presentation of machine learning (ML) tools used in financial risk management, portfolio management, and trading. Ten classes are offered: two on risk management, two on loan portfolio management, three on portfolio optimization, and three on high-frequency trading. The risk classes cover the risk measurement of financial assets using distribution fitting, copulas, PCA, and splines. The loan portfolio management classes cover risk estimation and backtesting using logistic regression, regularization, clustering methods, and the applied statistics concepts such as parameter and process risk. Kaggle competitions for loan portfolios which used tree-based algorithms for predictions are also reviewed. The classes on portfolio optimization introduce classic theories for asset return estimation and their extensions (multi-factor models) while using unsupervised & supervised ML methods to verify & derive new factors; modern portfolio theory using constrained optimization & robust methods; and Black-Litterman model portfolios where asset-specific, ML-derived models are integrated. The classes on trading introduce the limit order book and market microstructure and then move on to tour the winning strategies of to Kaggle competitions on trading. The feature engineering and code of the winning solutions are reviewed in depth.
Via analogy to biological neurons and human perception, this course is an introduction to artificial neural networks that brings high-level theory to life with interactive labs featuring TensorFlow, the most popular open-source Deep Learning library. Essential theory will be covered in a manner that provides students with an intuitive understanding of Deep Learning’s underlying foundations. Paired with hands-on code run-throughs in Jupyter notebooks as well as strategies for overcoming common pitfalls, this foundational knowledge will empower individuals with no previous understanding of neural networks to build production-ready Deep Learning applications across the major contemporary families: Convolutional Nets for machine vision; Long Short-Term Memory Recurrent Nets for natural language processing and time series analysis; Generative Adversarial Networks for producing realistic images; and Reinforcement Learning for playing video games.
This is a class for computer-literate people with no programming background who wish to learn basic Python programming. The course is aimed at those who want to learn “data wrangling” – manipulating downloaded files to make them amenable to analysis. We concentrate on language basics such as list and string manipulation, control structures, simple data analysis packages, and introduce modules for downloading data from the web.
This 20-hour Machine Learning with Python course covers all the basic machine learning methods and Python modules (especially Scikit-Learn) for implementing them. The five sessions cover: simple and multiple Linear regressions; classification methods including logistic regression, discriminant analysis and naive bayes, support vector machines (SVMs) and tree based methods; cross-validation and feature selection; regularization; principal component analysis (PCA) and clustering algorithms. After successfully completing of this course, you will be able to explain the principles of machine learning algorithms and implement these methods to analyze complex datasets and make predictions in Python.
This class is a comprehensive introduction to data science with Python programming language. This class targets people who have some basic knowledge of programming and want to take it to the next level. It introduces how to work with different data structures in Python and covers the most popular data analytics and visualization modules, including numpy, scipy, pandas, matplotlib, and seaborn. We use Ipython notebook to demonstrate the results of codes and change codes interactively throughout the class.
