How do you feel the future of development will look with the integration of GitHub Copilot and other, similar systems?

Having recently tested GitHub Copilot, I definitely think that it is the real deal. How do you feel development will look in the future using technology such as this?

I don't see developers randomly getting displaced by our new AI overlords, but I do think that, in some situations, being able to effectively utilize Copilot will be a very valuable skill.

As an idea, I think that Copilot encourages developers to think on a more macro level. There's a perspective on this where you could almost consider Copilot another advancement in ""scripting"".
