The future of tech lies in creating artificial intelligence-based bots that can write code, says Chad Fowler, a venture capitalist and chief technology officer at Microsoft’s startup advocacy department. “My personal interest is in the future of software development,” Mr. Fowler said in an interview with the “30 Minutes or Less” podcast hosted by Microsoft ScaleUp TLV, conducted during his visit to Israel and aired on Tuesday.

According to Mr. Fowler, the purpose of his visit to Israel was to connect with the local startup scene, both as a representative of Microsoft and as a venture capitalist. “I want startups to look me up, find out what I might possibly do, who I could introduce them with,” he said.
