Hey everyone, it's November 2023, and I've got some out-of-this-world news for you – aliens are real! Yep, according to some folks who used to work for the government, they found bodies of the pilots who flew these alien spaceships. But that's not even the wildest part – they also discovered some super weird code inside these space vehicles.
This code was so bizarre that they posted it on a website called Stack Overflow, where programmers usually go for help. But here's the twist – it got taken down because it looked too much like another coding language. If you're a bit older, you might remember Stack Overflow as the place to be for coding assistance.
But here's the scoop: Stack Overflow isn't as popular as it once was. In the last eight months, fewer people have visited the site. So, why is this happening? Well, there's this thing called artificial intelligence, or AI. It's like a super-smart computer that can answer coding questions.
Guess what? Stack Overflow created its own AI called Overflow AI. This AI can come up with answers based on all the questions and answers people have posted on Stack Overflow over the years. So now, some programmers are scratching their heads, wondering, "Why bother answering questions when AI can do it for me?"
This drop in Stack Overflow's popularity is kind of like what happens in nature. Imagine a hungry and stressed-out snake in the desert; it might start eating itself out of desperation. But of course, that can't go on forever. And it's not just Stack Overflow – other big AI models, like GPT-4, have already used up a lot of the data from Stack Overflow to train themselves.
So, it seems like we're entering a new era where AI is taking over. It's a bit like a big change, similar to when people found out about aliens. Funny how these things happen around the same time.
