Can AI really write its own code?

The article, AI can now write its own computer code. That’s good news for humans. | Technology News, The Indian Express, caught my interest and is one worth sharing.

This article first appeared in the New York Times, but that requires a subscription. As a Canadian, I’m not interested in subscribing to a US paper that I would read on the rarest of occasions.

Codex is a capable artificial intelligence technology that can write its own computer programs. The risk of displacing professional programmers is minimal. However, it can certainly serve as an aid to improve efficiency and reduce application development times.

It will be interesting to see how this technology evolves and for what purposes over the next few years.
