Generative AI is undoubtfully a game changer. As such, it tends to affect us with a full emotional cycle, which might include avoidance, denial, and even fear. Optimists could argue it's just a passing trend, while pessimists could claim it would end up replacing us all. The former is already proven incorrect, while the latter depends on how we play it.
The software industry specifically does include many applications of these technologies, which could definitely obviate the need for some of our daily roles (e.g., repetitive or formulatable tasks). The challenge to adapt to these (ever) changing circumstances, with their respective learning curve, might have some of us go looking for a new job. However, I suggest we see this as an opportunity to harness and leverage these great powers in our favor.
In this lecture, we will take the very first step in this journey, which is knowledge. We'll get to know some of the software-related tools and services and how we could outsource assignments to them in an efficient and controlled manner. Uninformed optimism is a decent mantra, but here we choose informed realism.
