#MXTalks Episode 1: Will ChatGPT and AI take over the world?

Our short answer, not so soon.


ChatGPT as an AI language model has shocked and impressed the world. The program can even detect emotions conveyed through written language and respond accordingly.

AI also presents exciting possibilities. For example, complete games designed with AI could learn and counter players’ moves, which would be an interesting development.

This development could be either positive or negative, as AI may outperform humans in many areas.

There are also concerns that certain jobs could be fully replaced, such as bank receptionists, customer support, and lower-level lawyers and doctors for simple tasks that don’t require much discussion or debate.

Adding on to that, a lot of fake news and inconsistent information are being spread on the Internet. With the addition of fake news AI that can produce realistic pictures and videos, it is becoming harder to differentiate between what is real and what is not.

This shows that the ethics surrounding AI are becoming increasingly important. As AI becomes more integrated into society, more thought must be given towards resolving who would take responsibility for any negative outcomes.

AI is here to stay, but there are still many issues to deal with, and we must ensure that we use this powerful tool ethically and morally.

Yesterday on #MXTalks Episode 6, we talked about how crypto can complement fiat. Here’s our summary:

Crypto complements fiat, along with CBDCs. Each of them offer their own pros and cons, but they provide options for users, which can be a good thing.

Crypto is a good replacement for fiat in cross-border transactions, especially when the country’s currency is volatile and subject to inflationary pressure, and when travelling abroad as a universally accepted payment method — one does not need to keep small change.

While CBDCs offer convenience for users to convert crypto to fiat easily, it also introduces a centralized component, which may contradict the decentralized nature of cryptocurrencies and create complications due to politics and geopolitics.

One of the biggest concerns around crypto is security. The majority of people struggle to protect their passwords and private keys from scammers, increasing the risk of hacking incidents such as phishing or code hacking.

To minimize these risks, payment providers are implementing different types of protection such as passwords and authenticators, but even with these measures, wallets and assets can still be stolen if the website is malicious.

Developers need to be extremely careful with codes to prevent hacking, and that there needs to be strong mitigation plans and safety nets to increase security and reduce fraud in payments.

Another challenge to wider adoption of crypto is the perception that it’s a closed system and can’t be used for real-life purchases. However, companies like Pundi X and HamBit are already making crypto possible to use for everyday payments.

A last concern regarding crypto is the volatility in transaction fees. Critics argue that gas fees can be volatile and create uncertainty, but we argue that using cryptocurrency for cross-border payments is almost instantaneous and much cheaper than traditional banking systems.

Overall, payment providers need to come up with solutions to protect people’s assets while making it easy for consumers to adopt. Having options is important, and anything digital is considered a friend.
