For decades, mankind has been discussing the possibilities and prospects of Artificial Intelligence and how it will change the world. Futurists described it as an anthropomorphic creature that can make decisions, solve important tasks and help in any possible way. But the reality surprised many people: Artificial Intelligence can have an incredibly wide range of applications and may not acquire physical form. This technology normally functions as trained algorithms that can be built in to any technology. Despite the fact that the Artificial Intelligence has been actively used in various spheres and technologies (for example, it is productively developed by such global corporations as Google, Apple, IBM), there is no single opinion of AI – there are both so-called “AI pessimists” and “AI-optimists”. Opponents of the use of Artificial Intelligence often talk about the moral and ethical component of this issue, and even the threat of the complete disappearance of mankind.
Stephen Hawking in an interview with the BBC said: “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race….It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.” Exactly the same words can also be said about the world of cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies raise the standard of human life, improve existing technologies and promote the development of those spheres that we do not even think of. The science of Blockchain is developing much faster than expected: at the 2015 Puerto Rico conference many researchers came to the conclusion that the the cryptocurrencies will fully be implemented by each citizen of the world by 2060.
