Deepmind has taught AI to write programs at the level of a mid-level programmer

DeepMind, a British company specializing in artificial intelligence, has taught its machines to write software at the level of a programmer with average ability, reports Newscientist.

DeepMind claims that their AlphaCode program manages to solve problems that require the application of logic, critical thinking and the ability to understand natural language.

AlphaCode took part in 10 rounds of human-programmer Codeforces competitions and showed quite a good result. The developer notes that the AI was able to compete with humans in terms of performance for the first time.

AlphaCode with a neural network was trained on numerous code examples obtained from the GitHub software repository and from previous Codeforces members.
