Mastering the art of coding is like becoming God - you hold the ability to bring dead matter (metal/silicone) into life. So you can make yourself a robot servant or smth and use that to make an autonomous farm for yourself, so that you have something taking care of your ass for the rest of your life.

i decided to actually go for it 3.5 months ago, learned a lot of logic stuff, c++, java, python, sql, glsl, opengl, c. im gonna learn c# and see if i like it more than java, because i hate using java. but i love it. its so much fun. its so true about the nerd and video game thing. my aunt married a guy and their children and his brothers and sisters childrens and his brothers are all nerdy ass engineers, and my brother. they did lego league and are into robotics. if i wasnt given stuff to train my memory at the age of 2, and gotten old computers to play on etc. i dont think id be able to do this type of work. but since i am a super nerd, it comes so easy. its like second hand. its just logic you already know, and you just have to make sure you cross your t's and dot your i's and j's and &i, and &j, and *i, and *j, and int******************************************, and int* or your int**. kinda curious if they put a limit on int* arrays now.

The big impact of coding is to learn to write a code to beat the stock market. If you that you dont have to work to any job anymore.

So he is basically telling us that the last job on earth will be soon automated hmmm looks like the singularity will came before than what it was expected And by the way i think it’s impossible to fight something that is smarter than all of us As the ancient roman said if you can't beat them, join them

and also, there will be no AI revolution overnight......relax Nature has its own way, let the evolution work, don't think real life is |T2 Hollywood shit, evolution always wins but revolutions looses mostly or some time...……...AI is truth but balance will be made by nature...…...
Ata Alvi (22 days ago)
hi, like your most videos and believe in your point of view but some where some times you deserve a hard slap on your face, so hard you can see little birdeeees flying...…..GOD created all human beings equal. PERIOD. no one is born C++ genius, knowledge is by pure desire and commitment, there are no shortcuts yes I agree and I practice this in my life. but your pathetic point that some people born with coding ability, shut up...……...and the rest of your message about those idiots who look for shortcuts yes you are hell RIGHT.

Honest Review (23 days ago)
Folks I am studying AI, and the Ai is limited..: and if any of one who knows how the program works...that has also same programming syntax like loops conditions, and others bla bla so every machine needs human, he is just talking about the 3rd party apps and about websites... Facebook:- has the same principle as the old website orkut that was made by google done on php 2.1, I don’t know what to say ...

Anthony Shope (23 days ago)
The 'soft skills'that will finally bring about the end of AI robotics are malevolence and resolve !!! I perceive that you are an oriental weasel !!!And yet Joma loves it when you blow "cum bubbles"!That is a hard/soft skill and you're living in an area (San Fran)where it is a highly prized skill !

U will NOT learn to CODE on your own !!! U will need the right curriculum
flamehiro (24 days ago)
I wouldn't trust AI unless it's in games. I like my machines simple, just give it orders and it does something. Otherwise, you are giving risk that the machine might learn too much and do something stupid or dangerous.

Franko Tom (26 days ago)
