NSE Academy, the education arm of the National Stock Exchange of India, and TalentSprint have launched a six-month program called the Advanced Certification Program in Artificial Intelligence for Financial Markets. The program aims at nurturing skilled talent in the financial markets, which worldwide are undergoing digital transformation, with huge adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions across algorithmic trading and portfolio management, market analysis and intelligent forecasting, capital optimization, risk management, regulatory compliance, and customer service.

Led by Dr Anand Jayaraman, a global data analytics consultant and educator, quant trader and portfolio manager, the program will be taught by academicians and industry practitioners through a case-study based curriculum.
