AI Job Threat for Devs

2 New Member
Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—plannin g, coding, testing, and deployment—with out human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own....

Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea is pretty unsettling, right? If AIs can take over complete coding projects, what’s left for humans? This has stirred up quite a reaction in the dev community. Some are worried about job security, while others are cracking jokes, maybe just to lighten the mood.

E.g. there's this AI named Devin making headlines. The developers claim Devin can autonomously complete coding projects from Upwork. However, there’s a decent chance that "Devin" fake / a marketing stunt (see the articles here and here). The evidence and demos provided so far don’t completely add up, and the company itself is super new and tiny.

Still, there are other, more serious projects out there. E.g. the no-code AI by SmythOS that claims to replace "90% of work" by assigning entire projects to autonomous AI agents and streamlining the workflow:

(You can watch the video here.)

Of course, looking at the possibility of streamlining projects this way also is quite exciting. In an interview, the CTO of SmythOS says that such AI systems are really empowering employees and not replacing them, as "the smartest systems aren’t the fully automated ones". Yet, we need to adapt and develop new skills to stay competitive.

Whatever way you look at it, I think the implications of automated AI engineers are huge.
