Financial companies have widely adopted big data analytics to uncover hidden patterns or unknown correlations that can help them make better predictions and thus more-informed business decisions. However, if not supported by rigorous methodological criteria, these methods can be more than misleading. This seminar covers a range of forecasting tools from small data and small models to big data and big models. Best forecasting principles are introduced and some of the most used methodologies in machine learning are also studied. Participants will learn how to create plausible alternative scenarios and assess their impact on their investments.
