The project Machine Learning Algorithms for Risk Management in Trading Activities will be supervised by Dr. Drona Kandhai and Prof. Peter Sloot. The main objective is to develop a prototype framework for pricing and risk management using machine learning  algorithms and a large variety of heterogeneous and high-volume data, including tick-by-tick quotes of bond prices, market data underlying economic indicators (such as interest rates, foreign exchange rates, inflation rates, and commodity prices) and news feeds.
