Module 1: Machine Learning Fundamentals
Explore fundamental concepts and methodologies of machine learning. Get a big picture before going in more depth some of the key concepts that will support your future learning.
Module 2: Regulatory Implications of AI
As the European Commission pledges to attempt to regulate AI, experts are sceptical about how to frame the AI legal framework. This session explains the impact of AI regulation for financial service firms.
Module 3: AI & ML - The Big Idea
This session builds on your understanding of the fundamentals and focuses on the strategic aspects of AI and ML and current applications of AI & ML in financial services. Understand the directional momentum of AI in financial services and which AI applications are currently driving the most impact. The session ends by signposting how all of this is relevant for you in your own role, right now.
Module 4: Understanding the challenges and opportunities of implementation
In this session, you will learn how major companies and financial services organisations are operationalising AI & ML. Through case studies and peer group discussion, understand where the opportunities and challenges might lie for your organisation.
Module 5: Operationalising AI & ML
The next two sessions give you the opportunity to experience engaging an organisation in an AI & ML initiative. What works best when it comes to getting buy in? What are some of the rocks in the road you’ll need to avoid? You will be working with your peers and our panel of experts in an experiential activity that will give you the confidence to operationalise what you learn on the programme.
Module 6: The IT Organisation - How to Enter the World of AI/ML
The barriers to entry are much lower than assumed (and getting lower). What are the main requirements your technology and IT teams need to consider? We also explore the importance of using available data in Machine Learning and make the case for the role of human guidance and intuition in its application.
