The great frontier 500 years ago was literacy. Today, it’s doing programming of some kind. Today’s programming will be obsolete in not very long. For example, when I was first using computers in the ’70s, people would say, “If you’re a serious programmer, you’ve got to be using assembly language.” Now, I often ask these computer science graduates, “Did you learn assembly language?” They say, “Yes, I had one class about assembly language.”
That’s what people like me try to do—automate that, so we can automate the process of programming, so what’s important is just going from what the human wants to do to getting the machine, as automatically as possible, to get that done.
