There was a bit of a splash made last week with the announcement of 'your AI pair programmer'. In computer science, 'pair programming' is where two people work on one computer to program something; the idea is that they're constantly talking about what they're doing. So what if an AI plays the role of the observer? "If you know a bit about what you're asking Copilot to code for you, and you have enough experience to clean up the code and fix the errors that it introduces, it can be very useful and save you time." There is, of course, no reason to limit this capacity to computer programming. Anyone developing any sort of content - even detailed and technical content - will need to take note.
