Can AI Predict the Future?

This workshop gets you started using neural networks to forecast time-series data. At the end of the program, you will be up to speed with the challenges peculiar to forecasting and become familiar with some powerful tools for forecasting.

The climax of the workshop is a challenge: Short-Horizon Prediction of Stock Prices. You will be given the task of predicting the stock price of selected companies, 15-minutes, 30-minutes and 60-minutes into the future. 

Participants will be required to work in groups of 3-5 to solve this challenge. Your stock prediction models will make virtual trades and ranked on a leaderboard.

MENTORED BY AI EXPERTS

The programme has a "demo day" where all solutions are reviewed by our experts and a "Finale" where everyone can get insightful feedback from experts and other teams.

What Our Students Say

When you're getting your hands dirty, you'll learn a lot. I took an entire course about machine learning previously, but when you're actually building it out, it was a whole new learning experience for me.

Program Outline

LEARN & BUILD (2-4 Aug)

All participants learn neural networks and forecasting concepts through self-pace videos and virtual mentorships from AI Experts. 

CONTEST (5 Aug)

All participants need to submit a stock forecasting model. The models will make virtual trades against live data. The results will be displayed on the leaderboard. The top 5 teams with highest profits will be selected to Finale. 

FINALE (6 Aug)

Selected teams will present their results live over Zoom. The teams who showcase excellent results and presentation will be given a Certificate of Excellence.

Past Students' Works

Last year, AI4IMPACT conducted a Deep Learning Datathon where 480 global participants played a role as energy traders and developed forecasting models to predict wind energy output.
