After a highly positive response on our Hidden Markov Models webinar last week and attendees asking us to conduct an extended version of the webinar, Byte Academy brings you a half day workshop where we'll deep dive into Stock price prediction using probabilistic graphical models hosted by Usha Rengaraju.

This session includes hands-on in solving one of the most common problems in quantitative finance -- Stock price prediction using probabilistic graphical models. The programming language used in this workshop is Python.

Part 1: Introduction to Probabilistic Graphical Models.
-History of Probabilistic Graphical Models from its origin
- Bayes theorem
-Types of graphical models--Directed Graphical models and Undirected Graphical models
- Basic concepts involved in both types of models and case studies for both types of models.
- Why one should choose to use Graphical models.

Part 2 : Introduction to Directed Graphical Models (Bayesian Networks).
- Fundamental concepts involved in Directed Graphical Models like conditional Independence, d-separation.
- Introduction to the concepts involved in one type of Directed Graphical Models -- Hidden Markov Models.

Part 3 : Deep-Dive into Hidden Markov Models.
