DOOOOOOOOOOOOM! AI learns to write its own code by stealing from other programs
OUT of the way, human, I’ve got this covered. A machine learning system has gained the ability to write its own code.

Created by researchers at Microsoft and the University of Cambridge, the system, called DeepCoder, solved basic challenges of the kind set by programming competitions. This kind of approach could make it much easier for people to build simple programs without knowing how to write code.

“All of a sudden people could be so much more productive,” says Armando Solar-Lezama at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who was not involved in the work. “They could build systems that it [would be] impossible to build before.”

Ultimately, the approach could allow non-coders to simply describe an idea for a program and let the system build it, says Marc Brockschmidt, one of DeepCoder’s creators at Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK.

DeepCoder uses a technique called program synthesis: creating new programs by piecing together lines of code taken from existing software – just like a programmer might. Given a list of inputs and outputs for each code fragment, DeepCoder learned which pieces of code were needed to achieve the desired result overall.

That is kind of cool.. Not too sure about this thing being out there on the net.. It could learn to code viruses and shit..

It seems to be a manipulative thief,must have Gates dna who from a video I just listened to is being man-hunted by military forces for releasing a bio-weapon on all of us.Injecting him with his own poisons would be the best for all the deaths on his hands.
