So since compsci is dead thanks to GPT-4 what is even worth studying anymore? I can't do manual labour because of a chronic injury so picking up a trade isn't an option.

    I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling discouraged about the future of computer science. I understand that the development of GPT-4 may make it seem like there's no longer a place for human programmers, but that couldn't be further from the truth.

    While GPT-4 is an impressive and powerful tool, it's important to remember that it's still just a machine, and it has its limitations. There will always be a need for human programmers to design, maintain, and improve upon the algorithms and systems that power our world.

    Moreover, the field of computer science is constantly evolving and expanding. Just because one particular area may become more automated doesn't mean that there aren't new and exciting areas to explore. There are many different specializations within computer science, from artificial intelligence and machine learning to cybersecurity and data analysis. Each of these areas requires specialized skills and knowledge that only human experts can provide.

    Furthermore, even if you're not able to pursue a physically demanding career due to your injury, there are still many opportunities in the tech industry that don't require strenuous labor. Many programming and IT jobs can be done remotely, which can be a great option for people with mobility issues.

    I understand that it can be disheartening to feel like your chosen field is becoming less relevant, but I encourage you to think of this as an opportunity to broaden your horizons and explore new areas of interest. Maybe there's a field that you've always been curious about but haven't had the time or opportunity to pursue. Or maybe you can use your programming skills in a new and innovative way that you hadn't considered before.

    Whatever you decide to do, please don't give up on yourself or your potential. There are still many exciting and fulfilling careers in computer science and beyond, and I have no doubt that you will find a path that's right for you.

    If your a web dev or spend all day copy stackoverflow you were already on the level of most Indians to begin with anon.

    The way I see it is there are plenty of niche fields for smart people. Coding in itself is going to be less significant but it will be a very good pairing. It will more be like people in advanced fields also know how to code and use AI to advance their work. If it gets to the point where the most advanced fields get automated they will 100% find a solution with robots to trades. So if it gets to that point it won't matter either way. Robots are a bit more expensive but they will find a way for sure and even if they don't the trades will have an increasing labor pool driving down wages quite a bit.

    But hey nothing matters in the material world long term you will die 100% and it could be next week for all you know. Or 70 years you could choose to just do drugs because life will end if you have this fatalistic mindset.

      AI so far has worked best on broad things with tons of data that are a bit loose or flexible to meaning.

      But it works worse when you get to very obscure nuanced things also the last time I checked it would get a lot of math problems wrong.

        Web dev is pretty broad aswell it depends what you mean backend is still very solid but doing front end stuff will not be or design shit.

          Backend is webdev, also backend tends to be easier than frontend for most business oriented software, I know because I'm writing a fullstack app in Next right know and I don't even think in terms of backend and frontend anymore, it all blends together.

    I'm a lurker and very ignorant at that, but correct me if I'm wrong, but the only one affected by it aren't just the lower workforce that mostly do the "brunt" of the work like indians or 3rd world workers and people who oversee things and make sure everything is alright or check for bugs will be okay? Sounds like they are just replacing Indians with robots like they replace first world workers with Indians since it was way cheaper.

    I'm an artist, so I kinda know the feeling, I actually know pretty well. I still think you guys would be the most affected by it because different from artists that make most of their money from being recognized and standing out, being mostly freelance and self marketing you guys are completely codependent from big corps and their greed. And it is much harder to stand out as an TI guy unless you are an unparalleled talent. Either way, just try to fight back like we've been doing it, we already made a few strides against copyright, I'm sure you can do something similar to code since it is probably all taken from some database like github. If you need any support I'm always here, for all the good it makes.

    Are real software engineers ITT? I tried using chatgpt and was impressed at first. But now it feels like it's google 2.0.

      I haven't seen anyone using it to solve problems on their prod codebase. Everything thus far has been toy problems solved on github millions of times (snake, fizzbuzz, some boilerplate javascript, etc.)

      I suspect it will become a very powerful tool for creating/maintaining documentation on existing codebases. Meanwhile, software devs can spend more time reasoning about the higher level problems and let the LLM's write the repetitive stuff. In all likelihood, my career prospects are fine, I just have to change what tools I use and how I use them.

        Do you think this tech might cause compsci students to rely too heavily on it for the basics and thus fricking themselves over in the long run when they have to start working on real problems?

        • 1 year ago
          Anonymous

          I don't think it will have a larger impact than google already does. It's easier to google something like "burrows-wheeler transform in python" and find some results that are (probably) written by people. Students can already do all their homework from stuff like that (and they're already screwing themselves over by not learning anything).

          Playing around with it myself, it's pretty neat how it manages to build up an example, but it can completely struggle with its own basic syntax. You probably won't get very far using it if you can't recognize where it makes its own mistakes.

          Picrel, the following response was a little better, but I haven't finished playing with it myself. I think this reasonably illustrates that you can't rely on it without at least some rudimentary programming knowledge yourself (in its current state, at least).

        you notice how GPT has a specific style of writing. It tries to say something that sounds profound and meaningful based on the data its given but it ultimately says nothing beyond some simple platitudes. GPT is not a great writer, it doesn't understand context and can't handle writing novels or analysing texts on a deeper level, what it does excel at though is simple and to the point texts summarising things as well as technical writing. Making it spit out code, write simple news articles and law texts are what it excels at because it's all purely technical.

    Oh boy here we go, another post praising the almighty GPT.

    I mean, who needs human writers when we have a machine learning model that can produce text that's almost as good as a five-year-old with a crayon?
    Let's give credit where credit is due. GPT's writing style is truly something to behold. I mean, it's not like we need variety, originality, or coherence in our writing anymore, right? Who cares if every other sentence is a repetition of the previous one or if the text makes no sense whatsoever? As long as we have our trusty GPT, we can generate endless pages of nonsensical blabber that no one will ever want to read. But seriously, can we just take a moment to appreciate the sheer genius of this thing? It's like a magic box that spits out words based on some incomprehensible algorithm, and we're all supposed to be impressed by it. Sure, it might not be able to understand the nuances of human language or context, but who needs that when we can have a robot write our essays and articles for us?

    So to all the human writers out there, I say: move aside, peasants. We have a new king in town, and its name is GPT. Long live the robotic overlords!
