    Show Notes

    Anyone who calls themselves a gamer will know the name, John Carmack.  He was the guy behind some of the most influential games in the past 30 years and also very vocal when it comes to issues of programming.  Jensen Huang, another name most of you will know, is the CEO of NVIDIA and a very accomplished public speaker.  He recent did a talk with the World Governments Summit to talk about AI and made some interesting statements about how AI is evolving and some of the great things that are happening in the field.

    One of these notions is how AI could turn anyone in a company into a programmer by using a Language Model AI that would interpret what a person requests and covert that into programming code.  Jensen also mentioned that while there is a current push to teach kids how to code, he felt that the need is no longer there since the programming languages kids would learn would be supplanted by an AI interface.

    Well, this made it to twitter and John Carmack had to chime in mentioned that teaching kids “coding” isn’t about learning programs but, teaching them how to solve problems.  The coding is just one of the few real-world examples that can apply to this at all levels.

    While this episode is not about how AI can take over everything but a more grounded discussion about AI and the hardware used to run the current models.
