Code is Dead, Long Live Code

Mar 13, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

What is the role of a developer when a computer starts writing its own code?

This talk will explore the growth of a developer role from engineer into “life coach” that trains computers how to learn and think on their own.

What will the world look like when technology creates technology? What are the skills technologists need to guide artificially intelligent machines?

A new dawn has emerged and the workforce driving that evolution will need more than a traditional background in computer science. We’ll unpack how these new developments in technology impact the talent necessary for the future of computing.
