  1. Exponential complexity once again. Yes, a lot of programming is (near) local in its effect on neighboring code. Code like that is a prime target for a code generator like OpenAI's new tool (an admittedly very high end semantic based code generator) . But as the number of logically dependent connections to a piece of code increases, the ripple effect that bit of code has on all the code that calls it also blossoms exponentially (and the code that calls the code that calls, and on and on). Any code that is generated for deeply entangled logical contexts like those that is not based on a coherent, holistic understanding of a large percentage of the code base is a destructive agent of chaos waiting to happen. Like all things AI, those tasks that do not require an adaptive, holistic, understanding of the code with an added dash of creativity will be automated. But the higher complexity end of the curve above the automation threshold will become that much more valuable along with the requisite humans needed to code those massively complex apps (until that day in the future when we really have "cracked the code" on the human mind).

    On the other hand, speaking as a contract programmer, I await with glee and depression the numerous hilarious and aggravating desperate client requests that go something like: "Do you have any experience with AI-generated code? Can you fix this mess by last week?" πŸ™‚
