TechXchange Conference Keynote: Opening General Session

When:  Sep 12, 2023 from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM (PT)

Keynote General Session: In a world where AI writes code, what is the role of the developer? 

AI represents the sixth major wave of innovation since the Industrial Revolution, and it’s already disrupting markets, transforming business cycles, and fundamentally reinventing how we work and live. Like every profession, the developer’s role is evolving as a result, and these changes raise an interesting question: If coding can be done in 30% of the time with AI, will 70% of developers disappear? Or will developers build 233% more programs?

Dinesh Nirmal, Senior Vice President of Products, IBM Software, will lead a discussion about where technology is headed and what that means for how humans interact with it. Dinesh will focus on the changing role of the developer, the skills now needed to build enterprise software, and why the modern developer will be able to do more than ever, better than ever. The discussion will include a panel of developers from clients in growth opportunity industries about new challenges and opportunities they face. Anant Jhingran, IBM Software’s Chief Technology Officer, will join Dinesh on stage to do a series of demoes of watsonx and Watson Code Assistant to show how generative AI is unlocking new levels of productivity and quality for developers across industries.
