1  Economy / Economics / Re: Money and happiness. on: June 16, 2021, 01:04:25 PM
I have read the same study as OP and completely agree with it.
While "money doesn't do everything" "money can't buy you love" are not false statement, thinking that money doesn't help is complete bullshit.

Not having to worry about staying alive / in good health / satiated / hydrated / under a roof / ... is a gigantic saving in stress, and money is a HUGE factor.
Many people seem to have a manichean point of view, thinking that the reality is to have either a social life / a loving family or money. Like the romantic view of movies or books, showing poor people happy together, sharing everything they have, etc... Well this is bullshit too. Poverty can be very ugly especially in a few countries.

It would be interesting to conduct this study in the other way : "Can you be happy without a single penny in your wallet ?"

While it doesn't seem impossible to me to be happy without money, most people just dream about getting rich. But in reality, all they want is to not lack of anything.

I have interest in AI as its coming like a hurricane. Do you have any outline of A.I courses you are offering? I am a newbie so will be interested in learning A.I from scratch. Hope you have relevant material for that. Maybe you should think about some demo material.

I haven't done any material yet, but A.I. introduction for newbies surely is a thing I can do. You're right, maybe I should do a portfolio/demo website or something like that.

Yes, you can make extra money by teaching the things you know on an online platform which is already happening in all the platforms and YouTube is one of the main source for it, you can teach things free of cost to the viewers but still you can make money from the ads revenue or you can just teach them the basic and ask them to visit yoir website for complete course amd you can set the subscription fee for that.

Well doing videos on youtube and expecting money from it sounds quite terrible (plus my purpose is to get paid in btc and not to have to bother with taxes and such). Not bad for demo material though.


We're all talking about "material" here but at first I was more interested about giving like few hours on discord of "real" class + presentation / hans-on coding. I can also probably just "sell" formation, but there are already some great ones online (in the non-trainer area). Or maybe this can also be part of the demo material.

What I take away is that it seems that people here are more interested in learning than in realizing or getting help carrying a project.

I can do courses about various subjects.

By level :
  • Beginner - I'm in IT since 11 year and in Machine learning since 6 years, so any subject you bring to me and let me prepare, from algorithmics to databases or genetic algorithms (just don't ask me stuff about websites, especially front). This level should be cheaper.
  • Medium - I can cover machine learning basics and generalities (you'll know what is "classification", "regression", "dimension reduction"... how you setup a machine learning project, and more) to specific model (I practiced SVM, random forests, various interpolation methods, PCA, etc etc). In this level, I can think about the skeleton of the project you need and I can explain the math or simply what are the specifications of each model you may want to use.
  • Advanced - I can explain in a very detailed way how neural networks work, what kind of NN exist and when you should use them.

If some hesitate, just PM me and ask "Hey, I have this and I want this, is it possible ?" or "What do I need to do this ?" or "Can you do this and that ?"
5  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Would you pay for AI courses / software ? on: May 24, 2021, 12:11:02 PM
Well it is easy to find cheap ML engineers online but what they do is mostly
 
  • use guidelines to select a model (google "machine learning cheatsheet")
  • pre-process data in an automatic (/"dumb" ?) way
  • feed the data to the model, then go "tada, you can have 80% acuracy for your problem".

I have several advantages : I have experience in various domains (Image or text classification, time series treatment, anomaly detection, image clustering)
+ this is my main job so others are already willing to pay for it Smiley
+ I can EXPLAIN what I do, why I do it and what the limits are. If you just want a small course on basics, I can do it (I have already given courses to students of various levels during my PhD)

Example : Your problem is
"I want to predict the price of the bitcoin"

1st thought : Machine learning aims to explain / predict / estimate results based on data you have. Bitcoin price (and all stock market-like time series) are explained by themselves AND external factors (you can't predict china ban / elon musk fud without looking at very different data).
So don't expect a very accurate result if you want to stay full chartist.

2nd thought : When possible, simplify your problem. Predicting the price may be optimistic but predicting the direction may be sufficient for your goal (i.e. become filthy rich with your magic box predicting bitcoin price). May be you can start here, then try to predict what the volume will be, then maybe try to crawl social network to pre-shot external factors, etc...

3rd thought : Having results based on a initial confidence ("when I trained my model I had 85% acuracy") isn't reliable in time. You must think about a way to have a confidence factor during the usage of the model. Example : think about 2 models (similar or not) predict more less the same thing (can happen a lot in machine learning). When 2 monthes passes, the models start to disagree. It means that you can't rely on the results of your models anymore, and you need to do some fine-tuning / re-training / ...



Price is debatable, I know that my company "sells" me for 1k€ / day to clients, freelances sell themselves for 600€/day, but everybody take much less because of charges + company takes money (I gain ~200€/day). + you can find cheap and dumb AI engineers online, as I mentioned before.

Just don't go "I want a full neural network translating english to japanese in real time with 99.9% acuracy, trained by a GPU rented by you, for 300€" please  Grin

Hello everyone,

I finished my PhD in neural networks (particularly auto-encoders) 2 years ago and have a steady and nice paying jobs.
However, I'm thinking about doing some extra work on the side to get a little bit more btc.

Would you consider paying for course, models/software, or just me thinking about a solution for a problem you want to solve ?
If yes, how much ?

I do have a PhD and several paper online (which I can explain if you want) but I'd rather keep them secret, so as my identity.

EDIT : I'm familiar with neural networks for classification, regression and anomaly detection. I also practiced various machine learning "simpler" models and ways to pre-process data.

Looking at 12H bars, biggest volume since more than a year.
27k€ - 30k€ consolidation is strong this time. That's bullish, right ?

The whole next year is critical bruh

Nah, it'll be fine.
There is some support down there. Long opportunities coming.

Just for fun, who do you think bought $400 Million worth of bitcoin and why?


Source: Fortune Website

There is no real possibility of knowing if this adress belongs to a whale or not. My theory : the dude who bought 400Musd in bitcoin was a whale who participated at the previous bullrun and the previous dump. He's just taking back some cheap bitcoin he sold  earlier for profit.
The fact that bitcoin price isn't regulated allow this kind of stuff.

Of maybe he's just some rich guy who got into my new favorite website http://www.isittimetobuybitcoin.org/  Grin

Nothing to worry about for the moment, the resistance is just a bit tougher than we thought.
Stagnation and high volume will give btc some momentum to break it.

13  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: February 20, 2018, 06:53:08 PM
and now you just pretend it didn't happen and that Bitcoin is always in a "bull channel" no matter how badly the TA breaks down?

You do know that I only interpret what I see, right ?

Everything is bullish! Even non-bullish things!

Look at the previous posts I made. Almost everytime I mentionned how the price could bounce and go down. Just gave my opinion about why it could go up. And surprise, it's going up !

Update from this post :


So far so good, nothing really unexpected. We definitely broke the last resistance.
The good news is the trend seems to get stronger and stronger. In fact, there is, as shown on the figure, the beginning of a volume spike. This straighten the uptrend and will help the price to rise again if it bounces off the next resistance. That makes the "worst" short term future scenario bullish. The best case scenario is btc price stagnating a few days in the next resistance, enough to gain momentum and break it.



Profits are in the buying side, of maybe a bit of selling if you expect some bouncy swings.

We are just digging through the resistance like it was butter. We will stay in the bullish channel until the next big PHAT resistance.
It's gonna be pretty nasty, this resistance took some pretty huge swing during and after the bullrun. It won't be the end if we bounce, but if we go through, I predict that we'll enter a full bull market for the next following monthes.

I mean by ROI the profitability of the token sale. Token sold at 1usd then traded at 0.5usd is a roi of -50%

Hello everyone,

I was wandering around the interwebz, looking for something to invest a few satoshis into, and I found https://icobench.com/
Apparently is provide some indicators. It lists ICO and link them to their websites, shows how an ICO issued token succeeded to provide ROI to investers, etc... And gives a note to ICOs based on few criterias and "expert" comments.

Can anyone tell if note given on this website to an ICO actually correspond to the ROI ?
Thanks !

We are currently bouncing in a rising channel but it’s narrow and fragile imho.  

The next 24 hours are critical.

Indeed.
I think, for all the potential buyers out there, I have found the cryptocurrency consulting website we need right now.

Update from this post :


As expected, we came back in the initial value based uptrend. Given the small breakthrough there was yesterday, I adjusted the value based uptrend.
Nothing new under the sun, still bullish, slowly goind to the next resistance. We will stand in this trend, as the trend become more and more precise, unless some major bad news.
The volume is still pretty standard-low since 08/02, so the trend is still pretty vulnerable.



I'll hodl for now, more profit may be taken later (unless you want to trade on the swings, which I'm terrible at).

So far so good, nothing really unexpected. We definitely broke the last resistance.
The good news is the trend seems to get stronger and stronger. In fact, there is, as shown on the figure, the beginning of a volume spike. This straighten the uptrend and will help the price to rise again if it bounces off the next resistance. That makes the "worst" short term future scenario bullish.
