With another new fancy AI tool, we keep getting closer to the singularity. But when it comes to programming human coders still reign supreme.
TL;DR: Wait until machine learning solutions solve real business problems.
With different approaches, they try to solve coding challenges.
They use transformer-based language models to generate code.
AlphaCode achieved an estimated rank within the top 54% of participants in programming competitions by solving new problems that require a combination of critical thinking, logic, algorithms, coding, and natural language understanding.
Deep Mind's product was trained and competed against humans at Codeforces contests.
With overfitting claims, it outperformed several people at those contests.
Results are available online.
A careful look at the datasets shows basic algorithmic solutions with output code full of code smells many human counterparts make.
Model domain entities and business behavior instead of boring and repetitive algorithms full of code smells.
Try to understand the entities and the behaviour of your simulation software.
Stop competing against smarter machines than you.
You will keep your job for a few more years...
