The big news this week was a request from leading figures in the tech industry to put a hold on the creation and application of AI models that go beyond OpenAI’s GTP-4, the incredibly powerful language algorithm that powers ChatGPT, until risks like job loss and misinformation can be better understood.

The AI models that have already been developed are likely to have significant effects, particularly in software development, even if OpenAI, Google, Microsoft, and other tech giants were to stop what they are doing—and they won’t stop what they’re doing.

Although the agreement between Alphabet and Replit, a web-based coding tool with over 20 million users, to provide AI may not seem like a typical business transaction, it represents something of a paradigm change. In Ghostwriter, a tool that works similarly to ChatGPT in that it suggests code and responds to questions about code, Replit will use Google’s AI models in addition to others. According to Replit’s CEO, Amjad Masad, Google has “super cool technology” that he can help developers access. Through this collaboration, Google will also make Replit accessible to Google Cloud users, enabling it to gain more corporate clients.

The action is especially significant because Alphabet is responding to Microsoft and GitHub, which use Copilot, an add-on for Visual Studio, and AI to help programmers. On computer languages, the same AI that makes ChatGPT seem so smart is employed. Tools like Copilot will recommend ways to finish your code as you type it.

The decision by Alphabet also points to a potential new major arena of conflict for powerful tech firms. Although Donald Trump in Midjourey 5 and ChatGPT parlor tactics are receiving a lot of attention, the real story is about which company can provide developers with the best AI tools and the new software that developers will create with the help of that AI.

According to Microsoft research, using an AI assistant can speed up development chores by more than 50%. Innovative AI providers can attract devs to their coding tools and compel them to use their clouds and other products. Code Whisperer is an AI coding tool created by Amazon, and Meta is also developing one for private use. Apple probably won’t want to fall behind.

AI is beginning to alter how code is written in addition to assisting coders with their writing. OpenAI revealed last week that the first ChatGPT modules had been developed. They will enable the bot to carry out operations like flight searches, dining reservations, and grocery purchasing. Software creation can be accelerated by incorporating AI into the code. This past week, Masad of Replit provided a cool illustration: a tool that converts speech commands into functional websites. In the future, Masad predicts that many software initiatives will begin in this manner.

Given how fast things are developing, it is important to think about any potential negative effects of hastily integrating AI into software development. AI tools have the ability to replicate flaws in code that developers might overlook or be unable to detect. If they depend too heavily on AI, perhaps developers will grow complacent or see their skills deteriorate. And what kind of “technical debt” might materialize if programmers are forced to fix software that has never been thoroughly reviewed by humans?

We might learn the answer soon.
