The end price of bitcoin has not been determined yet as not all 21 million bitcoins are available. Currently the market is trying to the determine the price, so we really have no idea what the end price will be. However, we can speculate at this point.

But again, the issue is people buying bitcoin to short it or "long it" as opposed to buying it to use it as an actual form of payment in the future. Regardless of what people think about bitcoin--that it has no value or what have you, people using it to buy and sell goods and services will ultimately determine its practicality. You can say something is valueless all day long, but if someone, and especially if a large population is willing to use it to buy and sell, then welp... That's how it works. Ultimately, it is dependent on the people.

6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / AI and Blockchain: By 2030 AI Will Contribute $15.7 Trillion to Global Economy on: April 26, 2018, 05:43:06 AM
ATN (AI Technology Network) Co-Founder Adel Shahin talked to the Shanghai-based blockchain and crypto news site Bitsonline about how ATN plans to open up the AI marketplace to buyers and sellers of all sizes, and stresses the importance of getting into AI: "By 2030, AI will contribute $30 trillion to the global economy".

According to the ATN white paper, the AI industry today is currently suffering from the classic problem of over-centralization. Specifically, the paper notes that the AI industry is mostly run by major players that “tend to isolate themselves from the competition in an attempt to secure their competitive advantage through technology development and access to big data.”

Not only that, but highly-researched and well-designed AI can cost millions of dollars. As such, it may be simply beyond the reach of smaller players. One of the key goals of ATN is to open up this marketplace to buyers and sellers of all sizes.  That way it’s not locked away and only in the domain of the current heavyweights like Google and Facebook.

In addition to operating on Ethereum, the tokens that ATN will use to power its platform will eventually be tradeable across different blockchains. The white paper lists that tokens will be available on Ethereum, QTUM, RSK, and possibly other chains. This will work by offering an exchange of sorts that allows for 1-to-1 swaps of the various tokens within the ATN platform.

One of the design goals for this set up was to allow those who have decentralized applications on alternative blockchains to potentially integrate an AI service through ATN. For instance, if a developer makes an app that runs only on QTUM, they could choose to use QTUM-based ATN tokens to pay for the AI services that they acquire through ATN.

For surgery I think we won't have much of a choice the more advanced technology gets, though for now there are doctors that work with robots for more precise cuts, which will lead to more successful surgeries. But yes, at this point to have surgery performed only by a robot is a little risky. They do not have the capacity to consider the well-being of the person, it's just programmed to do as its told. That human element is also extremely important to a successful surgery. Just the holding of a human hand (on part of the patient) can aid in relaxing down patients before surgery. At this point it makes the most sense for both to work together.

When it comes to ethics, artificial intelligence is just intelligence, not a person with rights and responsibilities.
It's owner is the person in which custody these machines live in and they should be fully responsible for actions of their machines.
Even if they act human, they are just machines owned by someone and they should be treated as such.

That's fair. The reason I ask this question is because Europe is now deciding whether or not to grant robots "personhood". If this becomes the new norm, we will have a lot more to think about and it will take the idea of "ethics" to a whole new level. https://slate.com/technology/2018/04/the-eu-is-trying-to-decide-whether-to-grant-robots-personhood.html

What if on your next doctor visit, AI was the one giving the diagnosis and not a specialist? While this type of software is already being developed, there is one that has been granted FDA approval. The question now is, as AI continues to develop, how does ethics come into play? Would you prefer to get a more accurate (though not 100%) diagnosis from a machine? What if the diagnosis is wrong, who is to blame?

For the first time, the US Food and Drug Administration has approved an artificial intelligence diagnostic device that doesn’t need a specialized doctor to interpret the results. The software program, called IDx-DR, can detect a form of eye disease by looking at photos of the retina.

It works like this: A nurse or doctor uploads photos of the patient’s retina taken with a special retinal camera. The IDx-DR software algorithm first indicates whether the image uploaded is high-quality enough to get a result. Then, it analyzes the images to determine whether the patient does or does not have diabetic retinopathy, a form of eye disease where too much blood sugar damages the blood vessels in the back of the eye. Diabetic retinopathy is the most common vision complication for people with diabetes, but is still fairly rare — there are about 200,00 cases per year.

In one clinical trial that used more than 900 images, IDx-DR correctly detected retinopathy about 87 percent of the time, and could correctly identify those who didn’t have the disease about 90 percent of the time.

The software is unique because it’s autonomous and there’s “not a specialist looking over the shoulder of [this] algorithm,” IDx-DR founder Michael Abràmoff told Science News. “It makes the clinical decision on its own.” This means that the technology can be used by a nurse or doctor who’s not an eye specialist, making diagnosis more accessible. For example, patients wouldn’t need to wait for an eye specialist to be available to get a diagnosis.

We are talking about China, so this could just fall under: nothing to see here.

However, what I find odd about this is that Taobao (also known as the Chinese "Ebay"), a subsidiary of Alibaba, is banning the listing of any services related to blockchain (not just cryptocurrency and ICOs), when China seems to be one of the major advocates of blockchain right now. Heck, Alibaba has even paired with other large companies to start a blockchain academy: https://www.forbes.com/sites/baymclaughlin/2018/02/08/this-week-in-china-tech-xiaomis-460-investments-tencents-gamble-and-a-new-blockchain-academy/#32e4f0af12d3.

I'm pretty confused what is the reason for this. Supporting blockchain on one hand and banning them on the other hand, well I guess only time will tell what their real attitude is...

The only thing I can think of is the issue of blurred lines or ambiguous services that might be pretending to just be blockchain related, but are in fact related to ICOs/token/crypto, so instead of sorting through them they have just banned it all together. Who knows. Taobao does have a lot of sketchy stuff on it though, to be fair.

"some degree of knowledge" is only knowing the basics like how to use a wallet and secure it, for example how to buy and use a hardware wallet! the "public" can easily learn that, it is not rocket science at this level. any deeper is not necessary to use it.

Right. But this works as long as we are only talking about bitcoin. It's code can be deemed trustworthy because of the level of community engagement. It has been proven to work.

Problem arises when you take up more applications of blockchain, like the article argues about smart contracts. Smart contracts have proven themselves to be buggy. The trustlessness feature of smart-contract is dependent on whether you trust the intention and competence of the people who write the code. (My reply above).

What would be your view on the need to make smart-contracts more accessible??

The idea of smart contracts was brought up at an event on blockchain that I attended recently, and there is still a huge question with smart contracts when it comes to security and making sure the code is reviewed properly. The person who brought up the security in using smart contracts was very adamant that this type of agreement is very unlikely to be accepted by large institutions when issues in coding can costs them up to millions of dollars in funds that will never be able to be brought back. So the response to this from another audience member is that another layer of security would be need to be in place, a higher and centralized authority that would be able to make the call in these types of situations. Is this an idea people would support? Despite it going against the idea of complete decentralization?

At this point in time, some degree of knowledge is important to be able to trust it, especially if we're dealing with money.

It's not rocket science to you. Say that to the people who still think you can only buy one entire bitcoin at a time.

Nice assist ATN.io. Sometimes it's easy forget that the basics are the fundamental buildings to succeed in any new endeavor. I will checkout the article you recommended. Thank you again.

Yup, no problem. Hope it's useful.
15  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Explain Bitcoin Like I’m Five on: April 16, 2018, 02:33:53 AM
If you are 5 years old, the way I would explain it is that Bitcoin is like lego pieces, they're fun and easy to play with, you could part with them or trade them in pieces or as a set, could be frustrated at times, they could be cheap or expensive depending on brands or if they're counterfeit, and some could be worth a fortune, for example some of Harry Potter's legos are in the thousands of dollars now even though they were less than $100 a few years ago.

Yup that works.

19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Twitter account @bitcoin has been suspended!!!!!!!!! on: April 13, 2018, 08:31:10 AM
I think Twitter recently imposed strict restrictions on ICOs and cryptocurrencies. This is a serious blow to the entire cryptocurrency industry, including Bitcoin, because Twitter is currently the largest cryptocurrency information dissemination platform. Both Facebook and Twitter have taken restrictions. So which social media can now freely disseminate information on cryptocurrencies?

Microsoft/LinkedIn (biggest ad revenue for sites that allow crypto ads) and Snapchat.

For your reference: https://www.recode.net/2018/3/19/17123674/cryptocurrency-bitcoin-advertising-ban-microsoft-twitter-google-facebook-oath-snap

Have at it.
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Twitter account @bitcoin has been suspended!!!!!!!!! on: April 13, 2018, 04:41:31 AM
There is another @bitcoin account.

https://twitter.com/bitcoin. I'm confused because it is a very active account now, just a few days ago it looked like a random account that was never used. Maybe after the account was suspended someone else was able to register with it???
