Reflective Writing (CPSC 240)

Reflective Writing 4: The End of Programming?

I think Matt Welsh brings up many good points in his article The End of Programming, where he discusses the changes in computer science and how most programmers will be replaced by AI. He is also correct in his assumption that people have no idea how CPU works and training models taking away experience from students learning about computer science.

However, I don’t think his point is totally correct. Sure, AI can work well for coding, but it isn’t always totally accurate. People should work with AI to get projects done, not let AI take over and do everything for them. I feel like if AI was trained enough, which may take a while, to code and do things that people probably wouldn’t be able to do, then yes… we should worry. However, I don’t think that’ll happen for a while.
