About This Course

This course provides a conceptual introduction to natural language processing and its key techniques and terminology. Participants will learn to interact effectively with data science experts in applying natural language processing to their investment decision making. Investment practitioners can then articulate their investment problems to the data science team, use their domain knowledge to effectively source suitable model inputs, and finally interpret model results into appropriate investment actions.

This course is designed those who want to understand natural language processing and is especially suited for the translator role, which is those individuals working with and communicating between both investment and data science teams.
