Re-training for the AI revolution

What's the new "learn to code" now that coding is on the way out?
>inb4 build/invest in AI

You need capital to do that, so the next 5-10 years of job security are critical.
So far the best idea I've come up with is to do trade certs, then be a tradie for a few years to pay for college to do an engineering degree. Then maybe do some oil rig/pipeline work to get startup capital for deep learning projects. What does bot think?
Also what are the best countries to set up in with regard to regulation of big data and predictive algorithms? (By "best" I mean "won't get in your way".)

      Why should this be useful? Math and statistics don't make you a better programmer.

        wrong, mathematicians are the best coders most of the time.

        Maths is an iq test and training in abstract problem solving and is far more useful than comp sci courses teaching you sorting algorithms you can learn later anyway

          except that mathematicians don't want to code. and if you are abstract enough you don't need to do a single calculation...

            yeah no that isn't true, most maths grads do coding because they want money

        Better than grinding leetcode and reading another book on Java design pattern though. Being able to read and understand academic paper will be an essential skill in coming era. LLM will do most of mundane coding skill so you should come up with new brilliant idea (which you can't) or be the first to implement the new idea in the future.

    Number one would be blue collar, but then you have to work together with conservative immigrant backstabbers.
    Number two is to teach learn to code to greedy third worlders through courses or bootcamps. It's selling shovels during a gold rush, so if you have no self respect and ethics go for it.
    Number three would be doing something that you have genuine interest for. Then it really doesn't matter whether the field becomes shit, because you'll have this autistic ambition that puts you in the top one percent.

    >Can you recommend a way to get started on this? Could you just dive into open access journals, or is there more to it than that?
    Skimming through abstracts (+ conclusions if you're interested, entire article if you're really interested) of conference paper/arxiv preprint/open access journal/libgen or scihub would be more than enough if you're not a researcher.

    Try search for implementation of the paper in paperswithcode.com. Contribute if there's none and you can implement the paper yourself.

    I also check hackernews/reddit(ironically)/twitter/awesome lists/facebook for recent paper/research everyday.

      Thanks, looks useful.

      Just prepare to survive another ~12 months

      Make sure to invest, buy index funds and if at all possible, cheap property

      I don't want to just survive though. Don't you want to be part of the biggest change since industrialisation?

          Where's the overreaction in thinking most coders can be replaced by LLM?

          • 3 months ago

            Because an LLM can't code.

    How the hell can you get training/education/job advice if you dont even mention where the frick you live? its hard to get a job if you live in the middle of nowhere.

      UK suburbs. I can move though, so it's not that important. Also there are other people ITT with their own circumstances, so generalised advice would be helpful.

      This for now, but eventually fewer and fewer coders will be needed.

      With recursive prompts you can get them to do a lot of the work for you.

    "Learn to code" is dead, but SWE isn't, even if you are not very good at it. Most morons put out of work by AI will be data "scientists" and webshits.

    AI is just pattern completion and will be for a long time. It does not work in anything that needs even a remote amount of thinking.
    If you think AI is so great, try letting it generate some shader-code
