Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang recently discussed how he believes artificial intelligence would affect IT jobs. In a video that has recently been circulating on social media. Huang claimed that people shouldn’t pressure kids to learn how to code. He pointed out that “everyone is now a programmer,” highlighting the expanding use of AI with tools like Google’s Gemini and OpenAI’s ChatGPT application

The CEO of Nvidia emphasizes the importance of “upskilling process” over coding education.

The 61-year-old clarified that while learning to code was once a crucial skill. It is now largely useless in the modern world. Almost everyone who stands on a platform like this in the last ten to fifteen years. Will tell you that learning computer science is essential for your children and that everyone should be able to program. Actually, it’s practically the complete opposite,” he remarked.

Huang emphasized that rather than having people learn languages like C++ and Java, technology needs to be developed that will enable computers to comprehend human commands. It is our responsibility to develop computing technology that eliminates the need for programming and uses human language instead. These days, everyone on the planet is a programmer. “This is AI’s miracle,” he declared.

According to Huang, parents should focus more on helping their children develop their unique skills rather than pushing them to learn programming or coding. “You now possess a computer that will carry out your commands. “He continued that everyone will have to upskill, and they will find the process enjoyable and unexpected.”

Co-founder of id Software concurs with Nvidia CEO

Huang received support from John Carmack, the co-founder of American video game company id Software. Carmack, on X, a platform formerly known as Twitter, reacted to the widely shared video featuring the Nvidia CEO discussing coding by saying, “People shouldn’t get overly attached to it. Coding was never the source of value.” The primary ability is problem solving.

“Traditional programming demands discipline and precision, which will remain valuable transferable attributes, will no longer be a barrier to entry,” he said. Carmack concluded his lengthy tweet with, “I suspect that I will enjoy managing AIs more, even if they wind up being better programmers than I am.”
