As the development of artificial intelligence progresses, the fear of this increases Thousands of jobs will be replaced By automated systems. This has already happened in various unions, and according to the results of recent studies, it seems that the nightmare has finally reached software developers.
Scientists at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island They are done That ChatGPT in its 3.5 form has Ability to develop software Without the need to receive training, which makes him able to manage a development company almost without human intervention.
“Interview for a manager position vacancy” for ChatGPT
For the research, scientists created ChatDev, a virtual development company in which artificial intelligence will work. To give you a more realistic approach, The company was divided into four partsDesign, coding, testing and documentation.
Jobs were assigned according to each stage and each position, with common instructions: the AI should periodically report on what they were working on. from here Communicated betweenemployees“From different regions. While one AI group was dedicated to design, the other group used the reported information to advance the coding section.
As this series continues, Human intervention was minimalBecause it was only necessary to clarify the language used. When specific requests were made, the AI systems responded in a quick and organized manner. In one exercise, they were asked to design a board game known as Gomokua Japanese version Subordinate “Three in a row” also “Cat game“.
The process was completed in just seven minutes., but not before leaving behind an extensive internal line of conversation between the different “workers” in each area. For example, a leading AI company asked designers tasks like “Beautiful graphic user interface“.
After 70 similar tests, the results were analyzed: 86.66% of programs developed by AI can be successfully implementedWith a minimum investment of about 1 euro per task when making the conversion.
“Our experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the automated software development process powered by ChatDev,” He reads in the studio.
Months ago, researchers from Stanford University, California Another experience To measure internal communication between AI systems by placing them in a controlled environment: 25 virtual city avatars were designed and allowed to interact.
The results have been overwhelming, too, since Avatars They achieved an organized society in a short timeFrom electing the president, organizing celebrations such as Valentine’s Day, and setting a schedule of activities. All without any human interaction. This study served as a precedent for better understanding the level of artificial intelligence that mimics human behavior.
Despite the results of the two studies, The researchers discovered important limitations: There are biases in linguistic models that hinder internal communication between AI systems, which inevitably leads to errors in the final results.
The intention is to use this research Support tools for software developersBut many speculate and fear that they will be replaced once AI systems reach a level of accuracy equal to or greater than humans, as appears to be happening in other disciplines.
