AAD and Machine Learning in Finance

Part 1, Wilmott, November 2019

Machine Learning in Finance

These two articles with code running simplistic Jupyter-TensorFlow (1.x) models demonstrate how vanilla neural nets (deeply) learn pricing of European calls and high dimensional basket options – the notebooks also compare neural nets with conventional polynomial regression models (a la LSM) and offer a quick, simple introduction to the implementation of simple deep learning models in TensorFlow.

Notebook 1: European call in Black and Scholes

Notebook 2: Basket option in Bachelier

The notebooks run directly on Google colab, in the cloud and on GPU, no installation required.
