As coding assistants become more accurate, it seems likely to assume that they will eventually stop being “assistants” and take over the job of writing code.


This just tells me the author isn't a programmer, or at least not a great one.

I just think that's the only way you make that assumption.

Granted, the companies who should definitely know that, and their CEOs... They are selling that idea to people who definitely wouldn't have any reason know better.

Edit:
I saw a post on social media criticizing some Indian guy because he posted a joke about integrating AI into something popular but where the whole joke was basically "ok guys, let's do source control, but with AI" and the entirety of the explanation was "source control + AI" (though it wasn't source control, I can't remember).

The vast majority of responses "did not get the joke" to say the least.
