“Modern software development time has been greatly reduced. To develop the logic for my high school exam takes the same amount of effort in Fortran as it does in today’s languages such as Java, C, Python, and Ruby. The code would look very similar. But the time it takes to enter those few lines, test, debug and execute the program successfully has decreased from days to minutes. Today’s high school students develop sophisticated websites, apps and bots in less time than it took me to create the first program I ever wrote.”

It even includes a dockerfile if I like.”

“When building applications that display untrusted content, security designers have a major problem— if an attacker has full control of a block of pixels, he can make those pixels look like anything he wants, including the UI of the application itself. He can then induce the user to undertake an unsafe action, and a user will be none the wiser.”

“In the coming decades, artificial intelligence will replace a lot of human jobs, from driving trucks to analyzing X-rays. But it will also work with us, taking over mundane personal tasks and enhancing our cognitive capabilities. As AI continues to improve, digital assistants—often in the form of disembodied voices—will become our helpers and collaborators, managing our schedules, guiding us through decisions, and making us better at our jobs.”
