AI assistants can write code, offer suggestions, and streamline our work. But here's the million-dollar question: Can they make us write less secure code?
Today's comic will give you three insightful results on this topic. 🙂
Those results are based on the paper "Do Users Write More Insecure Code with AI Assistants?" written by Stanford Researchers: Neil Perry (https://lnkd.in/e_y9ThrY), Megha Srivastava (https://lnkd.in/eJrTwdDC), Deepak Kumar (https://lnkd.in/ekizARJX), and Dan Boneh (https://lnkd.in/ePGAKGxM).

I believe that future AI assistants will provide numerous benefits for software engineers. However, at least for now, the quality of their output greatly depends on our input and interactions with them.
