The learn-to-code mantra has been thrown out of the window, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said at the recently concluded World Government Summit in Dubai.

"Over the course of the last 10 years, 15 years, almost everybody who sits on a stage like this would tell you that it is vital that your children learn computer science. [That] everybody should learn how to program. And in fact, it's almost exactly the opposite," Huang said.

The rise of AI is promising to make technical programming skills obsolete for most people other than those who design and maintain systems, he said.

"It is our job to create computing technology such that nobody has to program and that the programming language is human," Huang said. "Everybody in the world is now a programmer. This is the miracle of artificial intelligence."
