ML and AI workshop @ Google

4 April 2019, 09:30 – 17:30 @ Google HQ, 6 Pancras Square, Kings Cross, London, N1C 4AG

As the availability and volume of data continues to rise, the immense new compute power of cloud services is enabling Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to have a dramatic impact on all areas of financial services. For those who know how to harness the opportunity, the possibility exists to create transformational change across all areas of the business.

In this workshop, you will learn how to create benefit for your business by understanding the possibilities unlocked by ML and AI, the process of applying ML to a particular problem, and the advantages and disadvantages of the tools commonly used to implement ML solutions. You will also learn how Google Cloud Platform solves the main difficulties involved in deploying ML solutions. 

The workshop will include practical ‘hands-on’ sessions using relevant algorithms before putting some of these to use by running code in an attempt to make market predictions.

What we will cover:

  • The basics of Machine Learning and automation
  • How to validate and test your Machine Learning models
  • How to extract the best features from your data
  • How to process text using Natural Language Processing
  • Application of RPA / ML / AI to the appropriate lighthouse use-cases

Pre-requisites for attending our free workshop:

  • Some experience in using Python will be helpful, but not essential
  • A laptop and power cable
  • Lunch will be provided
