Will DeepMindā€™s AlphaCode Replace Programmers? New milestone achieved by AlphaCode in competitive programming. Should software engineers fear for their jobs? Will AI replace us or assist us?

I've been spending some time with OpenAI's Copilot and I must say I find it a very useful programming assistant
I think that's the future. The dynamic and complex context is what the human shines at (if you need more information you can request it by talking to the right people, humans also are very good at sense making)
For the more laborious tasks like: set up the Slack API library properly, initialize for this action and make sure I error handle the common cases appropriately; I feel like the computer can do a much better job filling in the details.
Thanks for sharing your perspective @Abid!
