Bankruptcy is one of the major concern for any type of market. If any company fall and loses money it’s a damage to a part of economic environment. Prediction of Bankruptcy has become important with time as it helps in mitigating risk by the organization as well as the current standing government. This short talk will walk you through how Machine Learning is changing the world of finance especially in mitigating the risk and damage from any potential financial crisis in future.


Financial data has got lot of characteristics, parameters and trends. It’s about the different type of machine learning algorithm applied on a particular type of data product to get the results. All the results will be uniquely given a weightage get the best analysis with high accuracy.


Its not a workshop. I will prefer to give a short talk with the presentation and a demo video of analysis.

    I really liked the idea, it captures the most important aspect of investment, i.e predicting how much good the investment can be and moreover is it viable. This will also help to calculate the investment risk more efficiently with very less cost.
