AI in Finance and Accounting



Decision-making in finance involves discovering and summarising relevant information, generating trade ideas, performing post-hoc analyses, and publishing reports.



In this workshop we will look at how we at Bloomberg leverage recent developments in AI to enable intelligent ways for our clients to obtain market advantages in every step of their decision making process, at scale, and with high precision. We will cover applications such as extraction of relevant information from news or social media, classification of news by topics, and sentiment analysis for finding signals in the market.
