Sobre o curso

The course aims at helping students to be able to solve practical ML-amenable problems that they may encounter in real life that include: (1) understanding where the problem one faces lands on a general landscape of available ML methods, (2) understanding which particular ML approach(es) would be most appropriate for resolving the problem, and (3) ability to successfully implement a solution, and assess its performance. A learner with some or no previous knowledge of Machine Learning (ML) will get to know main algorithms of Supervised and Unsupervised Learning, and Reinforcement Learning, and will be able to use ML open source Python packages to design, test, and implement ML algorithms in Finance. Fundamentals of Machine Learning in Finance will provide more at-depth view of supervised, unsupervised, and reinforcement learning, and end up in a project on using unsupervised learning for implementing a simple portfolio trading strategy. The course is designed for three categories of students: Practitioners working at financial institutions such as banks, asset management firms or hedge funds Individuals interested in applications of ML for personal day trading Current full-time students pursuing a degree in Finance, Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or other related disciplines who want to learn about practical applications of ML in Finance Experience with Python (including numpy, pandas, and IPython/Jupyter notebooks), linear algebra, basic probability theory and basic calculus is necessary to complete assignments in this course....

Furthered my understanding of how probabilistic models are connected to Machine Learning models. Very happy with the content in this course.

Great course which covers both theories as well as practical skills in the real implementations in the financial world.

For me, I find the math kind of useless. It's too hard for notice to understand, and too deep for those who don't want to know. This course should focus on its applications on finance. But at least you have few notebooks that you can keep for future reference.

Good material..The course would improve a lot if there were clear explanations for the goals of the assignments and the plan for the assignment.. The codes for the assignment should be fully debugged..

So far so good. The lecturer refers to projects of which some weren't covered in this course. So a little confusing. Takes lots of googling to finish this course.

Good course with relevant topics, but assignments are not clear sometimes, lack of support with them.

Add some hints in the notebooks, it was very hard to understand some parts

content of the lessons is quite good, I would give it 5 stars if the assignments weren't so buggy, contains mistakes, unclear instructions, no help from staff/moderator/instructor, technical issues that are not resolved, etc. a lot of frustration, it just feels like the course was rushed to production and they let the students debug it

Good lectures, but the problem sets are difficult, contain errors, little guidance, and no mentor or staff available to help with problems.

the course content is okay. but the coding exam really needs improvement.

The course staff should prepare more (the assignment and the support). Seriously. Too much ambiguities in the assignments, and discrepancies between the lectures and assignments.

I personally liked the material, especially that the course tried to deliver some real life applications.

This course should be titled Machine learning algorithms and their formulas.

The course lectures are quite hard to follow all you see is formulas and little application to the finance. The only part of the finance is the dataset. No course materials. Really bad.

The content of this course is not suited for online training. The videos mostly present an overview of the ML equations. You will have to consult textbooks for a deeper understanding. The exercises lack of guidance and do not have any conclusion. You will have a hard time to complete all the assignements if you don't know already well Scikit-learn, pandas, or even tensorflow.
