ChatGPT

Post by Simon.B » Sun Feb 19, 2023 3:00 am

Hi Earik, or any member who was/is using ChatGPT to build or assist in building a mechanical system.

Was wondering if anyone has some feedback or opinion on ChatGPT in this regard.

Thanks,
Simon

I have watched a couple YouTubers using ChatGPT to construct systems. Most seem to just be some over-fit backtest that I would not trust.

One guy I follow (and disclaimer, I took his course a couple years back), has a nice Tradestation video w/ChatGPT. It is easy enough to convert to QScript. (Give a shout if you need assistance).

Still not sure if I would trust the algorithm enough to give the system money however.

Thanks for your reply.

Yeah, after a few days of trying it out - I came to same conclusion. It seems their conversion of EA to Qscript is not
any better than built in converter in Wave59.

I personally did not find any real way of building systems with ChartGPT, but then my knowledge in scripting is rather limited.
I did talk to a few guys who seem to believe that ChartGPT was helpful to improve small particular snippets of code.

Thanks,
Simon

I follow a bunch of subreddits on programming. Most developers seem to use ChatGPT to help (like you said) with small snippets of code. Like, "Build me a regex to do XYZ."

If you haven't played with Hive or the Genetic Algorithm builder in Wave59, take a look at those. I have one hive that I built almost two years ago for the NQ. I have not made a single change to it in that time and it is cranking out alpha for me. In retrospect I should have allocated it more of my capital. :). but hindsight and all that jazz.

I did play with those, and created a few systems……but never used them :D
I’ve been discretionary trader all my life, just wanted to know what all excitement is about.

Thanks again,
Simon

ChatGPT has definitely been on my mind, too. Both my next door neighbors are work at home IT professionals. Had a chat while out walking with one yesterday -- yes, ChatGPT doesn't "know anything" but is very useful for things like "do this better using these parameters." Will report back when more informed/experienced. Also WSJ has some good reasonably technical articles.

As a retired Communication systems engineer, machines are simply "fast idiots"...they know nothing until you point them in a certain direction

which is why I am not concerned they will "take over the world"

I've thought about messing around with it for systems, but whenever I've had the time, I end up asking it philosophical questions instead and discussing the nature of the universe with it. I think the core tech is pretty amazing. The way I'd see it being most useful is actually as a research assistant. Rather than sitting there and typing out a bunch of code yourself, tell it the details of your system, then let it write the code for you in a fraction of the time. More like the Jarvis AI in Ironman, and much less like Skynet in the Terminator (if that makes sense :lol: )
