The most powerful computers are the ones between our ears. They aren't very fast but hey... I recommend developing some ideas and trading them live, maybe with a simulated account, as an adjunct to any other kind of development you do. You will see things and learn things doing that.
I was able to move from live trading, which I really am not good at or keen on, to semi automation where the computer was a useful helper, now I'm looking a little further down the road to where I can offload more to the computer and free myself up to do the discretionary work with better focus... I can't envision the day when the computer teaches me much of anything or does all the trading, it could backtest some stuff and improve on it, that is the most it can do in it's current state...
