I am not saying it, many experts are: https://www.youtube.com/shorts/2oKqBgpR1dg

While some against it are saying: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Swk3OW86uTM

Arguments against:

  • AI's role: While AI tools capable of generating code are emerging, they currently lack the creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills of human programmers. AI can automate routine tasks, but complex projects still require human expertise.
  • Demand for programmers: The demand for programmers is projected to grow in the coming years, driven by factors like digitalization, automation, and the expanding tech industry.
  • Evolution of programming: The nature of programming will likely evolve with AI assistance. Programmers might shift to higher-level design and oversight roles, while AI handles coding specifics.

Potential Scenarios:

  • Increased AI collaboration: Programmers may work alongside AI tools to improve efficiency and productivity.
  • Specialized programmers: Demand for programmers with expertise in areas like AI integration, cybersecurity, and complex algorithms might increase.
  • Democratization of programming: AI-powered tools could make coding more accessible, leading to a broader pool of individuals contributing to software development.

I stay neutral and open it up for discussions.

A Competitive Programming assistant using ChatGPT. To use you just have to be logging into https://chat.openai.com on some tab. It uses GPT3.5 by default(ie whatever is served via web), if you have API key for GPT4 you can try that too.

For Chrome:

For Edge:

ChatGPT is not that great at competitive coding yet. The intension of the extension is not to solve it entirely on your behalf but to generate tips and references which might help you to learn those topics quicker and then focus your time on those stuff which AI can't.

Since there are controversies around the philosophy behind building such tool I should give some clarification. To me CP is a vehicle to learn algorithms and not accumulate points and ratings on various sites which is why my focus is to learn existing algorithms as fast as possible so that I can use them to build more superior algorithms which the world have not seen yet. Even though I don't participate in CP but I do use this plugin to speedup my learnings.
