PRO TALK: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Programming & Developer Productivity

Feedback form is now closed.
Artificial Intelligence is creeping into our everyday lives and beginning to take over industries. AI can drive cars, planes, write your emails for you, play Go and even write songs. But can AI code? If not, what about using AI to build better software products? How can developers leverage AI to increase their productivity and enhance the programming experience?

We'll use this session to (a) survey the latest academic research on using AI for program analysis, (b) discuss how developer tools are starting to integrate AI, and (c) contemplate when AI could be capable of writing code autonomously.

Attendees will walk away with a grasp of how AI can improve developer productivity and job satisfaction, plus an understanding of challenges that lie ahead before any software is written entirely by AI.

Will cover:
- academic research on the topic
- Existing developer tools
- Vision for the near Future
