No, AI is not going to replace developers.

One thought on “No, AI is not going to replace developers.”

  1. It’s interesting to hear your perspective on the recent flood of AI memes in the programming subreddits. As a technical fellow in an AI program at MIT, your insights on the limitations of AI in replacing programmers are reassuring to those concerned about their career prospects.

    The fact that current AI is limited in scale, locality, and abstraction, along with the ever-important project specification, shows that “there will always be a need for human programmers”.

    It’s also fascinating to see how AI assistance can free up human programmers to focus on more critical thinking tasks.

    Thanks for sharing your insights!
