⚡️Codemotion released the interview I gave about JavaScript and AI topics

Over on the Codemotion magazine, they just released the video interviews shot at the Berlin edition last year.

I had quite a lot of questions, spanning from AI and ethics, what machine learning means for our market up to how to learn JavaScript. There are two parts to the interview:

In the first, I am answering these three questions:

  1. Microsoft has become this year’s top contributor to Github. What do you think about this?
  2. You said AI is as intelligent and good as we want it to be”. Are we moving towards a society in which tech is becoming more intelligent at the expense of the human brain?
  3. Could you share some tips to make humans less afraid of AI?

In the second interview we concentrated more on JavaScript:

  1. JavaScript is richer and messier year after year. Is it successful because it continues to change and evolve or is it becoming confusing and intimidating?
  2. Visual Studio Code has become the editor of choice of many web developers. In less than 3 years it is the #1. How can a good tool or toolchain improve your code and coding skill?
  3. AI and user interfaces: we are experiencing the launch of new products based on AI and new interface paradigms, f.e. voice or chat interfaces. How can developers use AI to improve the existing (visual) interfaces
