My Role

In this project, I was responsible for the backend development and logic implementation. This involved designing and coding the reinforcement learning models, integrating NLP for sentiment analysis, and developing the server-side API using Flask. I worked alongside two other team members who focused on the frontend development and overall system integration. Together, we ensured the system was robust, efficient, and capable of handling real-time trading data.
