Machine Learning in Finance Workshop

Workshop leader: John Hull, Maple Financial Professor of Derivatives & Risk Management at Joseph L. Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto   

This workshop is designed for participants who are new to machine learning and want to acquire skills in this area.  In order to succeed in finance, individuals need to understand enough about machine learning to use it as a tool. This means that they must (a) understand in a general way how the algorithms work, (b) know how to interpret machine leaning output and be able to make decisions on next steps in an analysis, and (c) communicate effectively with data-science professionals. The workshop will focus on developing these skills.
