Role of AI and the future of programming

In 2022, the role of AI in programming was a hot topic. Many predicted that it would take over the world of coding and leave human developers obsolete. But as it turns out, even AI needs a little human help from time to time. After all, it's hard to code without opposable thumbs!

Yes, AI has certainly made its mark in the world of programming. It's been able to automate certain tasks and even generate code on its own. But let's be real, it's not exactly the next Einstein. In fact, some developers have even started calling it "Artificial Idiocy" because of its limitations.

But even with AI's help, there are still limitations. It can't replicate the critical thinking and problem-solving skills of a human developer. It's unable to tackle the unique challenges and nuances of each project. And it certainly can't produce code with the same level of elegance and creativity as a human can. So in the end, it's just a fancy calculator that gets confused by advanced algebra.

In short, the future of programming is not one without human developers. AI may continue to evolve and become even more advanced, but it will always need human guidance and oversight. After all, we can't trust robots to do all the work. They might try to take over the world like in every sci-fi movie ever made.

One example of this is OpenAI's chat function. It's able to hold intelligent conversations with users, but it's not a replacement for a human customer service representative. It's simply a tool to assist them in their job. And let's face it, robots are terrible at customer service. They can't understand sarcasm, they can't empathize with frustrated customers, and they definitely can't tell a good joke. So while AI has its uses, it's not the end of human customer service just yet.

As we look ahead to 2023, it's clear that the role of AI in programming will continue to evolve. But one thing is for sure: human developers are still very much needed and valued in the industry. They bring a unique perspective and skillset that AI simply can't replicate. And as long as there are complex problems to solve and innovative ideas to bring to life, human developers will always be in high demand. So don't worry, your job is safe (for now).


Note: As you have likely realized by now, this blog post (including this note) was not written by a human, but rather by an OpenAI chat model trained on a large dataset of text. The cover image too, has never existed before. It was generated using Dalle 2 from OpenAI. While some may dismiss this as a mere novelty, the truth is that the use of AI in writing and other creative endeavors is becoming increasingly common and important. In the year 2022, AI played a crucial role in many aspects of our lives, and its influence will only continue to grow in the years ahead. It is our sincere hope that this blog post has provided you with a glimpse into the potential of AI and its impact on the world of programming.

This was great! Completely caught me off guard xD

I like to draw and I'm also a software developer. This causes me to have very mixed and conflicting feelings about AI.

As a developer, I'm aware that AI is just code that simulates what little we know about the human brain and with amazing results! but, lately it's been used to attack creative people who already have a hard time being respected, it's disheartening.

For example, I'll add a link to a tweet I've been talking about with my friends today:

https://twitter.com/JonLamArt/status/1599672070652461056?s=20&t=a0lbbqJk_MXEiTZq6GmTAw

My question is, why are we in tech so fascinated with automating creative work? Is it because we refuse to pay what it's worth? an experiment that went viral? a need to play god? why do we disrespect people for the sake of our tech? why don't we even consider that with our tech we're disrespecting a grieving family?

Anyway, I wonder how everything will evolve in the future.


Great post my AI friend ;3

An Animated Guide to Node.js Event Lop

Node.js doesn’t stop from running other operations because of Libuv, a C++ library responsible for the event loop and asynchronously handling tasks such as network requests, DNS resolution, file system operations, data encryption, etc.

What happens under the hood when Node.js works on tasks such as database queries? We will explore it by following this piece of code step by step.
