Headline, October 31 2021/ STUDENTS : ''' '' THE SOFTWARE TAP '' '''



AUTOMATING PROGRAMMING : The Software Engineers. Welcome to !WOW! - the exclusive ownership of every student in the world.

! STUDENTS REIGN *SUPREME ! : WITH ALMIGHTY GOD'S BLESSINGS, in times ahead, every student in the world, every school, college, and academia indexed and tabulated.

ALL INPUTS coming from the students themselves. All inputs fed by students and entities themselves. All control with the students. All future with the students. In one  great  sweep we overtake the honored S&P, S&P 500, Bloomberg, and the likes. !WOW! -The great finisher. 

In the view of Sharif Shameem, the boss of Debuild, a firm in San Francisco that uses GPT-3 to help build Websites, the technology also reduces ''cognitive overhead.'' Selecting from multiple choices is less taxing than devising solutions from a scratch.

THE BUGS AND THE SYSTEM : DARK SIDES and silver linings. The global students must come to grips with a vote, consensus, democracy, & liberation.

IN NOW AND IN 5 YEARS AHEAD. THE SOFTWARE ENGINEERS JUST ZOOM  REDUNDANT. Like a classic ''Tonga driver'', you set about on the roads to villages. Hey, buzzoff, rickshaws have taken over.

The World is using GPT-3 and its predecessor GPT-2 to add AI to the software that those programmers use to write code.

Much of what these programmers type out has already been written elsewhere at some points elsewhere at some point in the past. This means that by feeding oodles of preexisting code into such packages, they can be trained to predict the lines a programmer needs next.

As programmer types, potential ''code completions'' of one or a few lines pop up on the screen. 

GPT-3 IS QUITE A BEAST. THE GENERATIVE PRE - TRAINED TRANSFORMER-3, to give its full name, is a language model developed by OpenA1, a part commercial, part not-for-profit artificial-intelligence [AI] laboratory in San Francisco.

GPT-3 was trained on an unprecedented mass of text to teach it the probability that a given word will follow preceding words. When fed a short text ''prompt'', it cranks out astonishingly coherent prose written in a similar style.

Access to GPT-3 is restricted. For one thing, says Jack Clark, former head of policy at the organisation, it might otherwise be used to mass produce fake news or flood social media with ''trolling and griefing'' messages.

But OpenAI also knows that GPT-3 is commercially valuable. Last year the laboratory started letting vetted firms buy its output for approved uses. These include producing answers to typed questions about products, and powering the speech of fictional characters in virtual worlds. But perhaps most important, GPT-3 can also be used to write computer code.

PREDICT & PROVIDE : One company that has created such an AI-completion feature is Tabnine. of Tel Aviv. TabnIne used GPT-2 to feed so much code to its programming software, also named Tabnine, that this software gained a sort of ''world knowledge'', says Eran Yahav the firm's top technologist.

Dr. Yahav describes this ''a pretty good notion of how the world behaves'', at least when it comes to programming-speak. TabnIne software may detect that a user has begun to type code to handle, say, purchase orders.

It will then suggest code to display product names and prices, as well as code to create fields to be filled with quantities, payment and delivery data. It works even though Tabnine has never been specifically instructed to do that.

Some coding sequences are rare. In these cases Tabnine lengthens its pop-up list of suggested completions to increase the likelihood of offering a useful one. By clicking on one that is appropriate, the programmer teaches Tabnine to perform better.

Tabnine's professional version seems ''almost intelligent'' in its ability to understand a programmer's intent, according to Dror Weiss, the firm's boss.

Tabnine is not alone. On June 17th Microsoft, an American software giant, released a new version of an AI-completion feature which it embeds in coding software called Visual Studio.

The original version released in 2018 and named Intelli Code, was trained on a few thousand online repositories in which code for programming projects is stored.

Microsoft trained its upgraded system on more than half a million such repositories. Amanda Silver, one of the executives in charge of Visual Studio, says these extra heaps of training fodder allow the new version to glean intent better from hints in code that a programmer has already written.

THE PURPOSE of all this, of course, is to save time. Kite, a firm in San Francisco, claims its AI-competition products cut the number of strokes required for some tasks by nearly half. Overall efficiency gains, however, are lower.

Vitaly Khudobakshov, head of AI products at the St Petersburg office of JetBrains, a Czech developer of programming software, sees time savings of 10% to 20%.
