Our events booking system is currently down, please email events@cfauk.org or call 020 7648 6200 to book on to this event including the event name and your CFA UK membership number.

This three part hands-on, programming-based data science course is a sequel to Cognitir’s Introduction to Data Science course. The online course with live instructor will run over three evenings; 5th, 6th, & 7th November from 16:30 - 19:00. You will be sent access details for the course nearer the time.

This course will provide an overview of modern machine learning algorithms that analysts, portfolio managers, traders and chief investment officers should understand given the improved ability to capture and analyse data.

This course will explore classification methods including neural networks and decision trees, which are among the most effective data science techniques. At the end of the workshop, you will be comfortable applying the Python programming language to build common classification algorithms and evaluate and interpret their accuracies.

What this course offers

  • An overview of core classification methods and how to use them to solve real-world problems in the finance industry
  • Hands-on Python programming experience
  • Course notes, certificate of completion, and post-seminar email support for 1 year
  • An engaging and practical training approach with a qualified instructor with relevant
  • technical, business, and educational experiences
