Title: ‘No-code’ movement brings AI to the masses by Craig S. Smith (New York Times, Mar 15, 2022)
Summary: The ‘no-code’ movement introduces the idea of utilizing the power of ArtificiaI Intelligence without needing to know what’s happening in the backstage. A growing number of new products allows anyone to apply AI without having to write a single line of computer code. However, current methods of training data prove to be tedious and labor-intensive – many programs train their system by asking users to upload photo samples, but this can go up to the thousands. Regardless, advocates believe that this movement will change the world. What used to be achievable only by gathering a team of engineers can now be brought to life by normal users with a web browser and an idea. With that being said, the movement is “not there yet” because “not many people understand machine learning enough to dream up what’s possible” (Josh Tiernan, who runs No Code Founders).
