You'll get a framework/app/api that will deliver you the info programmed by someone really into AI.
It'll be business as usual.
Know API's, frameworks, how to analyse data and tools around this, know people.
AKA Just be a good programmer.
However, the author of this thread I don't think was asking how to go about implementing someone's API as much as how to be the one to create the AIs that the APIs in the future might attach to.
Seriously, does for you being a good programmer only consist in calling some API or knowing some framework?
