Participation of An-Najah staff in the AI, Financial Automation and Market Risk online workshop
On the 19th of May, 2020, An-Najah University team participated in the online workshop: "AI, Financial Automation and Market Risk", which was held by the FIN-Tech Project with the European Commission and the University College London (UCL). The team participated with a working paper titled: "Bitcoins Option Price Forecasting using Multilayer Neural Network" using Zoom.
The authors in the working paper were: Dr. Shatha Qamhieh Head of the Finance and Banking Department and Dr. Haya Sammaneh, Dr. Emad Natsheh and Dr. Manar Qamhieh from the Department of Computer Engineering.
The working paper uses a two-step classical-neural modelling to improve the accuracy of Bitcoin option prices forecasting by augmenting the classical option pricing models with a multilayer neural network. However, the main focus is not on the classical models performance themselves, nor on proving that neural networks are better in terms of option pricing prediction, but improving the prediction produced by the neural network through the improvement of its input features, structure, activation functions and training algorithm.
