How well would it work as a testbed for learning algorithms? I heard that you get good access to game data etc. Would it be feasible to be profitable at mining if you have a great prediction algorithm? I know nothing about the game but that would sound interesting as a nice dev-sideproject for structured data algorithms. Can you automate/script the trading/mining etc. or is that forbidden/considered botting or whatever?

Mining is a venture that benefits less from predictive optimization and far more from operational scale. Barring black swan events, having perfect market prediction is nowhere near as valuable as being able to strip mine systems with an Orca/Rorqual account boosting a fleet of miner accounts.
