Future Developments

Hello Encog Team,

A while back I read on the site about future plans and aspirations e.g. Encog 3.2 and the work associated with trading, I see this work is basically completed. Is there an Encog road map in circulation for future development i.e. more books,videos,etc?

Best Regards John

Yes, the trading enhancements for 3.2 are mostly complete. I took quite a few detours before I got it to the point I was happy with. I find the code generation to be a pretty good option for NT/MT4. This way I am not doing unusual things with sockets or DLL's. The code is just self-contained NT/MT4 code.

Next steps. I would like to add MT5. I also want to expand the code generation so that SVM's and NEAT networks can be generated to NT/MT.

The other big project I am working on is expanding Encog into Genetic Programming (GP). This is already well underway, and the foundations of it will be in Encog 3.2. Also a major rework of the NEAT neural networks.

Thanks for the update Jeff, the genetic programming (GP) is very timely for me.

The application of genetic programming is fascinating on its own or with neural networks and I enjoyed the Lunar Lander example.

Tic-tac toe and TSP was the main reason I bought the Introduction to Neural Networks for Java, but I have been side-tracked back to other parts of the book, the book is excellent. I am also looking forward to the enhancements to NEAT and all the Wiki updates.

Best Regards John.

The new GP code is actually independent of neural networks. The GP actually has a small mini-programming language and it uses that to evolve solutions. This naturally works quite well with code generation, as the winning solution can then be "generated" into C/Java/MQL4/NinjaScript, or whatever.

The whole genetic portion of Encog is getting a bit of an overhaul. NEAT included.

First at all, congratulations for your great work! I'm learning a lot from you about neuralnetwork and AI. I'm waiting impatiently the release of encog 3.2, can you say us the expected release date? thanks a lot
