Some days ago I read how Alpha Go Zero was able to learn playing Go by itself with no human teaching. This made me wonder if DeepMind software could be used to create an AI able to profitable trade forex.
DeepMind has demonstrated their software is capable of playing Go or Chess by learning from zero with just the game rules. No brute force game play as DeepBlue did. DeepMind offers some of their tools and knowhow publicly. Even there is a joint project with Blizzard to create an AI player for StarCraft II that onyone can run at home.
My approach to this subject is very naive as I know nothing about computer neural networks or machine learning. All i read about this subject makes me wonder how close are we to see the first trader AI. When this happens, the owner should have a gigantic advantage over the human and algo traders. This could have a big effect, once again, on how wealth is created and built up.
Now, thinking out loud. It would be great, for all of us, if a profitable AI trader would result in a Darwin.
