Training the AI to write better LiveCode

ChatGPT has been called a search engine without the search engine.
I would tend to agree with that.  It seems to find bits and pieces of code
or articles that others have written before and tries to put them together.
It uses a text typing output mode to give it the appearance of an
intelligence/person typing at the keyboard, but that is part of the illusion.

ChatGPT claims that it isn’t connected to the internet, but it is, or it wouldn’t
be able to respond to your questions over the internet.  The database
that it accesses for answers is however compartmentalized, as far as
we have been told.

If by some miracle we were able to train it to be super intelligent at
writing computer code, do we as programmers really want to shoot
ourselves in the foot by giving it the tools to replace our talent?
That’s food for thought.  Just because something may be technologically
possible, doesn’t mean we should necessarily do that thing.

Just my two cents.

Enjoy your day!
