It’s hard to imagine today’s world without AIs. It has become a real industry competition to see who can advertise more AI products. But why do all companies want to offer AI-supported programs or goods?
What the AIs next to ChatGPT or autonomous driving can
As part of advancing digitalization, AIs are responsible for many changes in the use of digital tools.
For example, AIs find positive uses in the medical sector. There will be imaging procedures such as retinal scans, computer tomography (CT) or X-ray images are evaluated by AIs.
Algorithms are trained with huge amounts of data to distinguish healthy from unhealthy images or to improve image files. According to MEDICA 2019, the Jena University Hospital was the first facility in the world to do so Deep Learning Image Reconstruction a. This procedure artificially improves the quality of CT images by reducing image noise.
AI-supported systems can mean an enormous economic or technological advantage for companies. Development has even progressed to the point where AIs are writing programming code.
Can the AI behind ChatGPT program like a human?
To do this, the following question must be clarified: Where does the AI get its knowledge from? Thanks to Machine Learning (ML) AIs are fed information from databases. To put it simply, evaluation frameworks are defined. Every decision made by the AI is evaluated accordingly and an empirical value is generated. Similar to us humans, AIs have to collect a lot of experience in order to be able to fulfill tasks.
The following applies: the more precisely tailored data is made available to an AI, the higher quality the answer to tasks is.
If you ask ChatGPT for programming help, there is a clear answer. Only individual code snippets can be created. So they are smaller code segments for simple functions instead of fully functional programs. ChatGPT even explicitly warns against relying solely on the AI-generated code.
That’s why companies pay huge salaries to IT beginners
According to a survey by the industry association Bitkom eV, 68% of all companies surveyed see AI as the most important future technology. In addition, there is an acute shortage of skilled workers in the IT sector. A report by the German Economic Institute (IW) came to the conclusion that an average of 67,924 IT positions remained open in 2022 – more than ever before. The situation will probably be similarly precarious in 2023.
Since existing programs like ChatGPT cannot (yet) fill this personnel gap, it is hardly surprising that companies advertise paying programmers huge starting salaries. According to Statista and Bitkom, the average median gross annual salary of young professionals is 55,662 euros!
Conclusion: A lot of programmers are needed, especially for AI development. Yes, the machine will eventually learn on its own through trial and error and continuous testing. Nevertheless, intelligent programs always require human support and control. That’s why salaries for IT specialists will probably continue to grow – even for career starters.
