Re: Grammar-Pattern Programmers: Is Over-Abstraction Delivering Projects Faster Or Slower?

The amateur software engineer is always in search of magic, some sensational method or tool whose application promises to render software development trivial. It is the mark of the professional software engineer to know that no such panacea exist.

Re: If you are bored with Deep Networks

Maybe high-level plumbing? Like in the old days of Fortran libraries, system designs  and UML.

Design patterns for AI systems might enjoy a renaissance. https://...
