Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang announced that coding is completely dead. Speaking at the Word Government Summit in Dubai, Huang said that due to the rapid advances in artificial intelligence, learning to code should no longer be a priority for those looking to break into the tech industry.

Learning to code has long been seen by many industry executives as a vital skill for success, but Huang's latest speech is likely to break that tradition.

NO NEED TO SPEND HUNDREDS OF HOURS LEARNING 

Thanks to advances in generative AI, natural language processing is promising to be the future of coding, eliminating the need for young professionals to spend hundreds of hours learning specific coding languages.

"WE CAN SAY THAT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD IS A PROGRAMMER"

Huang said, "Our job is to create a computer technology where no one has to program. We can say that the programming language is human, that everyone in the world is now a programmer. This is the miracle of artificial intelligence."

The Nvidia chief said the time spent learning to code should be invested in expertise in sectors such as agriculture, biology, manufacturing and education.
