Highly curious about things that increase my awareness, expand my perception, and make me open to being a better person.

Is AI progress going to spell the end of programming as we know it? Many programmers are concerned about this question as AI technology advances at a rapid pace. Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science that focuses on a system’s ability to solve problems by thinking humanly, acting humanly, thinking rationally, and acting rationally. Since the mid-1900s, AI technology has come a long way, with many pioneers contributing to its advancement. Recent advances in deep learning, a subset of machine learning, have resulted in several technologies receiving a lot of attention, such as ChatGPT, a deep learning technology that uses natural language processing skills and can learn new information through reinforcement learning from human feedback (RLHF).

While an AI system can learn to write software code, it cannot completely replace human programmers. Human programmers have desirable characteristics that AI cannot replicate, such as creativity, problem-solving abilities, and a grasp of user experience. AI can help programmers increase their productivity, but it cannot completely replace them. To summarize, AI technology will not be the end of programming; rather, it will be an asset that will assist programmers in creating software more efficiently.

  1. AI will replace most conventional jobs but if embraced and used as an assistant and coach Then life will be so much more

  2. For a time that is true. But only for a time. In less time than it takes to realize your baby is no longer a child, AI will eclipse human programmers simply by simulating code in a sandbox at speed, remove errors and drive high levels of security that humans just don't have the discipline to deliver. And the point of humans having a unique spark of creativity which is nothing more than random choices taken at unusual times, I expect computers will better that approach from the ground up rather than the "Flash of Insight" from the top down, which leaves a large gap of between the foundation of what we know now and that future vision.
