Course Introduction: 

This course provides a brief introduction to Data Science and Text Analytics with AI/NLP (Natural Language Processing) technologies. We are now living in a world increasingly overwhelmed by data. Data science, broadly taken as the science of extracting meaningful information from data is gaining prominence in understanding the world and society we live in. And as unstructured data is the most abundant type of data ever generated on a daily basis, the analytic process that is used for deriving high-quality information from text, often called text analytics or text mining, plays an important role in data science.
The latest AI/NLP techniques have fundamentally reshaped our understanding of data, and are already empowering the new generation of data scientists. In this course, we will introduce the basic idea of Data Science, and explain how AI, Machine Learning, and NLP are making it far more feasible to automate many data analytics processes, including related tools and resources. Some real applications will be demonstrated.

Course Introduction:
Financial technology (Fintech) is a broad category that refers to the innovative use of technology in designing and delivering financial services and products. While many technology innovations play essential parts in revolutionizing financial services, this course focuses on deep learning (DL) and its applications in FinTech. Deep learning is a form of machine learning that enables computers to learn from experience and understand the world in terms of a hierarchy of concepts with a deep representation of many layers. It has been proven to be highly successful in predictive tasks for computer vision and natural language processing applications. In this course, we hope to demonstrate how DL can be applied to achieve superior predictive performance in FinTech applications.
