Programming is one of the promising applications of deep learning and large language models. The growing demand for programming talent has spurred a race to create tools that can make developers more productive and give non-developers tools to create software. In this regard, DeepMind's AlphaCode surely impresses. It can solve complicated programming challenges that typically require hours of planning, coding, and testing, and it could become a good tool to turn problem descriptions into working code.
But it certainly is not the equivalent of a human programmer of any level. It is a totally different approach to creating software, one that is not complete without human thinking and intuition.
