Du découplage du progrès matériel et du progrès logiciel

Douglas Crockford, inventeur du format JSON, sur Uses This :

When I started programming, my university’s computer had 16k of memory, filled a large room with a raised floor and fire suppression system, required constant maintenance, and cost millions of dollars.

I am happy with the hardware situation. I can easily carry both of my laptops in one hand. They are cheap and very reliable, and literally a million times better than the computer I shared at school.

Unfortunately, software is only about a hundred times better. We still have a long long way to go to make the software for the dream setup.

L’intelligence artificielle est-elle la réponse ?
