An anonymous reader quotes CNBC:
The rise of artificial intelligence will make even software engineers less sought after. That’s because artificial intelligence will soon write its own software, according to Jack Dorsey, the tech billionaire boss of Twitter and Square. And that’s going to put some beginning-level software engineers in a tough spot.

“We talk a lot about the self-driving trucks in and whatnot” when discussing how automation will replace jobs held by humans, Dorsey told former Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang on an episode of the “Yang Speaks” podcast published Thursday. But A.I. “is even coming for programming” jobs, Dorsey said.

“A lot of the goals of machine learning and deep learning is to write the software itself over time so a lot of entry-level programming jobs will just not be as relevant anymore,” Dorsey told Yang.



Dorsey also told Yang that he belives a Universal Basic Income could give workers “peace of mind” that they’ll be able to “eat and feed their children while they are learning how to transition into this new world.”

“The chain which can be yanked is not the eternal chain.”
