comment What broker/feed/APIsetup allows for recording the most accurate data (cheaply)?
@allen, it should be pretty easy to check if you download the T4 desktop and open up one of the sample projects from the installation directory. I think you will also need Visual Studio 2008 or later.

@user40, I don't know of any that are free and allow the granularity of IB or T4 (tick feed and tick historical data). IBM has a Java API, but it's pretty expensive (it starts at 1,850 USD for a 12 month license and goes up to 101,000 USD).

comment How are risk management practices applied to ML/AI-based automated trading systems
@shabbychef, I was actually asking for risk management of the trades generated by the ML/AI systems, not the risks involved with developing such systems.

@Shane, I've updated the question... I think that a Genetic Programming model would be black-box, since the resulting "trading agents" are often difficult to understand (i.e. they contain "junk DNA" which usually occurs with evolution).
