Artificial Intelligence might be a buzzword in the press – but it has real implications for technology jobs. So what do developers really think about AI?
- Elon Musk warns of killer robots and describes AI as ‘humanity’s biggest existential threat’.
- Meanwhile, Bill Gates is more optimistic – claiming, ‘AI can be our friend’ and allow society to do more with fewer resources.
As developers often work with AI and machine learning technologies, many people would assume that a clear picture is forming among the development community about the likely social impact of AI.
However, research by Stack Overflow sheds lights on what developers really think about AI – and it paints a split picture.
