It is often said that in the future, jobs that were once done by humans could eventually be taken over by robots who are admittedly more efficient due to their lack of the need to rest, take breaks, and sleep. While there are some jobs that are obvious in terms of robots being better at it, there are some that are less obvious, such as the job of a programmer.

However a Danish startup by the name of Ulzard Technologies IVS could change that, thanks to their development of AI dubbed pix2code that can help to program applications based on just screenshots. Basically what this means is that all users need to do is feed the AI with screenshots of what they want their program to look like, and it will then be able to generate code off of that.

In some ways it is more efficient than humans because it can code for multiple platforms, such as Android, iOS, and “web-based technologies”, whereas not all human developers are fluent in multiple languages and platforms, which is why multiple humans are sometimes needed for a job.

For those interested, you can check out the video above which shows the AI in action. The company’s founder Tony Beltramelli has also shared some details about the AI on GitHub and plans to make the source code available later this year.
