The Future of Computer Science in the Age of AI

We speak with Dr. Ian Tan, an Associate Professor in Computer Science and the Head of the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia. We discuss the profound changes artificial intelligence (AI) is bringing to the world of programming and computer science. From Jensen Huang’s vision of a future where traditional programming languages are no longer necessary to the rise of low-code and no-code platforms, we explore how these advancements are reshaping educational curricula and the skill sets required for future software developers.

We also touch on the concept of digital twins, the democratisation of programming, and the importance of ethical considerations in AI development. Dr. Tan shares his thoughts on how computer science education should evolve to prepare students for a world where AI plays an increasingly central role.
