Recent advances in AI and machine learning are finding practical applications across many industries, not least the finance industry. In particular, research into the use of AI and machine learning as a new tool for stock investment has been very active.
I’ll show how AI and machine learning can be applied to the problem of discovering and implementing stock investment strategies.
As an example, I’ll introduce an example of developing machine learning based forecasting methods while focusing on the perspective of price fluctuation patterns, which is the philosophy of technical analysis.
