    You mistake it for a forum about tech workers, its not. Its a forum for Ycombinator, a startup accelerator and venture capital firm.

    Every time someone's job is automated, society at large gains much more than that individual loses. The path to a good future for humanity is automating as many jobs as possible and redistributing the economic gains to compensate everyone who lost their jobs. It's stupid to try to detail this plan.

      you are right, but the devaluation campaign carried out by corporations and states on software does not occur in any other sector. on the contrary, control and gate keeping is increasing under the pretext of safety. according to a regulation passed last year, in order to buy aspirin, i have to make an appointment with a doctor, pay the examination fee and convince them for a prescription. if aspirin can harm me, software produced by an unaccredited person or by automation can also harm doctors and pharmacists, and even their patients.

        We know now compression is intelligence (Hutter) and SGD trained deep nets compress and generalize at scale to the limit we can't see even approaching.

          Compression is a thing we could expect an intelligent being does. But it is not sufficient to be an efficient compressor to be intelligent.

      Wait until learns that what programmers do isn't actually 'coding' but figuring out whatever vague bullshit requirements need implementing.

      The reason you won't automate software engineers is simple: you lack the language and technical skills necessary to define the problem you want to solve.

      Believe it or not - the AI thing has already played out. Before LLMs some engineers at a YC backed company wrote a tool that let anyone generate graphical UIs by drawing them. Guess what happened? Non-technical users couldn't figure out how to draw interfaces that were logically consistent or in any way related to programs.

      The same thing is now happening with LLMs writing code. You see that they're not doing the full job of an engineer. They'll do a subset like maybe translate a highly technical, detailed issue in a repo to a 'fix' (that then needs manual approval) or write code from a set of requirements already so technical that they might as well have just been code in the first place. A normal users though with themselves and the AI? Maybe replace a few basic use cases like 'make me an exel macro that ...' but they won't be doing engineering.

        LLMs are worse than that. At least with a the UI failure the average person could tell that the generated result was faulty. A non-technical user generating code they don't understand and cannot debug, but "works for now" is going to create so many problems as context changes and time moves on.

        This. Good luck understanding the constantly changing requirements that the product owner doesn't fully get himself, little robot. Also, the architect solution isn't working because he didn't take into account that webservice A didn't provide the correct field needed, figure that out, contact the guy, design a new architecture etc

    You know why I became a software developer? Because I _don't_ want to deal with stuff. For the same reason I have a well, I also do away with other chores. The entire point of a job is to have less of it in the future.

    Obviously I'm not rooting for monopolized remote-only gigaisraelite AI that leaves you all the work anyway, but democratized local access to great AIs for the people.
