Is ChatGPT any good at writing code?

<< < (7/7)

linux-works:
as others have said, in general, I think this is a time bomb that humanity will not recover from.  once it explodes.  and it will.

not in a single bang, but over time, so much will be changed and we cant change (ourselves) fast enough to keep up.

dan dennett (rip) also echoed this caution.

but hey, we're just stupid humans.  we dont really think thru our actions.  so, go right ahead, guys.  I'm an older guy; the youngers ones are who are really going to pay for this.

(btw, all this applies to regular people.  if you are in the controlling elite, this is the best time in the history of mankind for YOU.)

But you're likely to get frustrated as more and more people expect these LLMs to do your job, and then come back to you to help them get out of the mess they have put themselves in. Get prepared to this to get over the frustration (the "I told you" syndrome), and you'll be fine with probably no shortage of work to do for years to come.

That's no different to what I've experienced repeatedly since the 80s: "Your $10,000 quote is too high, we found a student who said he can do it for $500".

Two years pass ...

"Hi, the student's code never worked. Can you fix it?"

ChatGPT coding might save you some typing, but it's really very much like the messages we get here and on Reddit etc all the time about student assignments "My code doesn't work, what's wrong?"  Uhhh .. everything?

It's all about perceptions.
The MBA Boss knows nothing about technology & believes all the fairytales that come out of the media, so they really believe that Chat GPT  & the like can do all these things better than a human.

Yes, but I think it's like some newbie which found some financial fraud platform like forex thinks that he can earn big money with that. He invest all their money into it... Some of them cannot learn lesson even when they lose all their money. So it can be big end for a big bosses  :)
