Machine Learning for Banking (with Python)

Course Code

mlbankingpython_

Duration

21 hours (usually 3 days including breaks)

Requirements

  • Experience with Python programming
  • Basic familiarity with statistics and linear algebra

Overview

Machine Learning is a branch of Artificial Intelligence wherein computers have the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. Python is a programming language famous for its clear syntax and readability. It offers an excellent collection of well-tested libraries and techniques for developing machine learning applications.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to apply machine learning techniques and tools for solving real-world problems in the banking industry.

Participants first learn the key principles, then put their knowledge into practice by building their own machine learning models and using them to complete a number of team projects.

Audience

  • Developers
  • Data scientists

Format of the course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice
