TOP REVIEWS FROM GUIDED TOUR OF MACHINE LEARNING IN FINANCE
Very useful course. Personally, I think that there should have been more focus on the implementation of tensorflow and neural network codes. Overall the course is well structured and very clear.
To much math in lectures, assignments are not coherent and complicated, im not sure that i need tensorflow from scratch to work with finance(Keras fits better)
Despite all the problems with the assignments and the grader this course provides really good overview ML tools and their application to finance. It's definitely worth the effort
Homework is not always consistent with what's covered in class. The recommended readings are very helpful.
