Machine Learning for Financial Applications

Using machine learning algorithms can be interesting to come to conclusions for your thesis. However, it also becomes very easily overly complicated. In order to prevent getting stuck with codes, data, and programming environments, I present a few tips and tricks. Firstly, make sure you understand what it takes when starting to program in a…

Neural Networks: The Basics and a Collection of YouTube Videos

Artificial neural networks (ANN) or simply “neural networks” are computing systems inspired by “classical biological” neural networks that are in animal brains. Typically an ANN “learn” to perform tasks by considering examples, without being programmed with task-specific rules. Image recognition is a classical example where neural networks are used; in particular they learn to identify images…
