An Artificial Intelligence (AI) startup which came through the very first Leicester Startups Accelerator will help students take on “complex challenges” and get them “business-ready”, thanks to a new partnership with the University of Edinburgh.

Predictiva, which aims to make advanced AI available to everyone, is working with the Scottish institution on its MSc in Finance, Technology and Policy programme.

The programme prepares students with technical skills and knowledge of programming, artificial intelligence and machine learning who also understand financial markets and regulations so they are ready to develop technological solutions fit for the financial sector.
