This is the first of a sequence of study group meetings around the topic of machine learning and finance. We will follow the online course "Machine Learning in Finance" by Dr. Igor Halperin (available here: https://www.coursera.org/learn/guided-tour-machine-learning-finance/home/welcome).
The attendees are expected to finish the materials in Week 1 and Week 2 (or have equivalent experience) before the meeting. Actually, Week 1 and Week 2 are mostly introductory and mainly touched upon some basics, so it should be fast to go over them.
During the meeting, we will help the group member with difficulties he/she may encounter during the study and exchange our experience in effective learning while doing our routine job. Hope this group will be a self-supporting group for young professionals like us to keep learning and explore new technologies.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me.
