IBM AI chief: No need for a computer science degree to work in tech soon

IBM's global managing partner for generative AI, Matthew Candy, predicts a future in which a computer science degree may not be necessary to succeed in the IT sector.
In his ideal world, artificial intelligence (AI) would replace the need for specific technical knowledge by taking on the function of coding.
According to Candy, those who want to work in the tech industry may soon be able to leave the world of coding behind and use AI to easily transform concepts into concrete things.
With the use of AI-powered tools and platforms, people may now create and make a substantial contribution to the IT industry, regardless of their technical experience. This is a fundamental shift that has occurred.
This is Candy's statement in a recent interview with Fortune:
"The speed at which people will be able to come up with an idea, to test the idea, to make something, it's going to be so accelerated.
You don't need to have a degree in computer science to do that.
Questioning, creativity skills, and innovation are going to be hugely important because I think AI's going to free up more capacity for creative thought processes."
