Re: FIVE hundred years from now: can you predict the Software Landscape in anno 2525?

Let me put it this way, Mr. Alan. The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error.

Re: FIVE hundred years from now: can you predict the Software Landscape in anno 2525?

One is reminded of the phrase “he filled a much needed gap.” Some of these language discussions tend to drift into variants of “What is a good drone to perform visual inspection of remote fields? ...  No, you really want a sturdy tractor, and this is the best one!” https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Eu1or...

Re: Universal Approximation theorem

Theorem 1.1 is GOBBELY GOOK. 
This article is the weirdest I have ever seen.

Who are they trying to fool?
I am afraid that they already fooled a lot of people around there...

Re: FIVE hundred years from now: can you predict the Software Landscape in anno 2525?

Yes, all nice cute features. And multiple dispatch is easy in C++ .. it's called Visitor. I discovered it independently in 1992 for CAD applications. It's not really an interface thing, it has a different purpose (separation of data from I/O) ... use std::function if you want pluggable components, o...

Re: FIVE hundred years from now: can you predict the Software Landscape in anno 2525?

I think both Python and C++ are probably here to stay, but Julia does fill in a space between them, with ease of use that exceeds the former and runtime speed that approaches the latter. She also plays well with others, and is represented by the “Ju” in Jupyter. And I know we have discussed this be...

Purchase a product from 3rd parties under 2 conditions.

1. It is very expensive.
