The demand for coding and computer programming is high. However, there is a possibility that in the near future Chat GPT and similar AI tools may fill some of the existing gaps. According to Madgavkar (McKinsey), AI technologies like Chat GPT could take over a significant portion of the work in tech jobs like software engineers, web developers, computer programmers, coders and data scientists.
The reason for this is because AI like Chat GPT is able to calculate numbers with high accuracy. In fact, advanced technology like chat could possibly program GPT Codes faster than humans. That, in turn, means tasks could be completed with fewer people, explains Mark Muro, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute.
Tech companies like OpenAI are already considering using AI to replace software developers. Still, Oded Netzer, a professor at Columbia Business School, believes that AI will help programmers rather than replace them. Although these jobs are not threatened with extinction, many jobs in this industry could well disappear.
