Hello Jerry,

What's the chances of AI and Machine learning replacing manual program development/support process in the IBM i environment?

Zero. Not limited to IBM i.

AI isn't magic and what we are presented with today is far from intelligent at all. AI as we know it today is a program having been told how to program itself iteratively until it can solve *one* thing good to almost perfect. Most often, this thing is some flavor of pattern recognition.

What is programming? Telling the machine what it should do, and how it should do it. How can some AI know what's inside your head? Your idea must be formulated into a logic flow, at least. That's what programming is about.

"Low Code" tools on (other platforms) have showed that there is a certain possibility for abstraction. But it's almost universal: You can have the flexibility and hard learning of telling the computer in a textual way what to do. Or you can do it with a lot less flexibility and much more "can't do that, it's not in the UI" but — so they say — easier learning with something to click on. Text as in "programming language" but also as in "command line".

In any case you need to know what you want to do (domain-specific knowledge), or you will fail eventually.

:wq! PoC
