Documentation, APIs & AI
About the talk:
AI is entering the world of APIs, where API documentation plays a critical role. One of the fundamental challenges is the need to share understanding about an API and keep the knowledge up to date. AI can potentially speed up API integrations dramatically, but it greatly depends on API documentation.
Let's explore the emerging approach to employing AI in APIs, discuss its impact on API documentation, and see how changing our way of working with APIs will lead to self-integrating applications.
