Will chatgpt replace engineers

Will chatgpt replace engineers?

ChatGPT is a natural language processing tool driven by artificial intelligence technology. Developed by OpenAI, an American artificial intelligence research laboratory, and officially launched on November 30, 2022. Only two months after its launch, the number of active users has exceeded 100 million.

To know that the number of users exceeded 100 million, it took TikTok nine months and Instagram two and a half years. So ChatGPT has also become the fastest growing consumer application in history.

What exactly does ChatGPT do?


To put it simply, it is an AI robot software that can chat. But it is different from the chatbots we have known before: ChatGPT can be used to write an A+ paper, write a news report, complete a design drawing, or even pass Google's programming interview and so on.

Knowing this, I really wants to experience the powerful functions of ChatGPT. However, it is difficult to log in after using various methods (everyone understands), and some netizens say that there is a request overload after logging in. There are probably two reasons: one is that there are more daily active users, and everyone works in a variety of ways; the other is that GPT has gradually begun to charge fees, and gradually implemented restrictions on free channels.

Does it write Verilog code?

Presumably all the engineers here are also curious about whether ChatGPT can write a piece of Verilog code.

It turns out that it can not only write a piece of code, but even add an explanation.

The engineer who let ChatGPT write Verilog code also said:

"The complete code is very long, and I haven't checked it, but roughly speaking, it basically has all the functions. 

For too complex, there is nothing you can do, such as: Ethernet protocol stack.

But there is a more interesting phenomenon. When I asked it to write the Ethernet protocol stack for the first time, it prompted that it was too difficult to write.

After resetting the dialogue, let it write again, it will write a rough module, which only has some interfaces, and then reset the dialogue and let it write again, and the written program will be more.

It shows that its learning ability has been growing.

Maybe its function is not very perfect now, but as an engineer, seeing such a powerful function, I can't help feeling a little bit, what is our core competitiveness? If one day, AI can help us write code, what should we do?

Will we be replaced?

After all, artificial intelligence is created by people. It does not have the subjective initiative that people have, and it cannot fully understand some issues. It can help people complete some repetitive tasks, but it is difficult to complete those that require creativity. 

But it will force everyone to get more and more curly. A task that might have taken hours to complete, ChatGPT can complete in a few seconds. At present, the most impacted by ChatGPT should be the field of content output, such as junior content creators and programmers, which may be affected.

Although ChatGPT is very powerful, it still has many loopholes and deficiencies.
