    When the machines come out to play. It does seem they are reactive but not all of them. Well done Ms. Shull

    The next generation of trading algorithms will likely rely more and more on unsupervised learning techniques - having computers play through ensembles of market scenarios and alpha signals - and "learn" to recognize patterns without humans having to constantly tweak the input parameters and make dubious assumptions. The algorithms will be more and more self-adjusting. Applying methodologies like deep reinforcement learning (and whatever follows after) in this way is obviously extremely difficult but it is the ultimate conclusion, whether it takes years or decades to get there.
