Professionals will say that AI can't replace coding because they'll never be able to replace the human element of critical thinking and interpreting client needs. I say AI will replace coding because CEOs are dipshits.

This is why there is a fundamental difference between coding and engineering, even though that line has gotten pretty blurry recently. AI will absolutely replace coding. It's already doing so. It will be a bigger lift to actually replace human engineers doing domain specific R&D work. The AIs will just become another tool in that workflow, like calculators or CAD software.

It actually hasn't. IDK which sector you're working in, but ChatGPT has been useless in the overwhelming majority of cases for me.

Hallucinating functions that don't exist, generating broken shit... And I gave it a fair shot. I could use a docs synthesizer right now. But it feels like even that is too advanced for the current tech.

The other use case I can foresee for it is as a fancy static analyzer. But the tech is not there yet. I guess we'll have to rely on formally proven stuff for at least a bit more.
