Automation will continue at a faster pace than ever before in human history.  If you recall talk about the “information revolution” from 25 years ago when the web was in its infancy, you’ll wince at how quaint and wrong the pundits were.  The real information revolution is happening now, and the robots are winning.  Our politics are now infested with disaffected and displaced low-skill humans who have become obsolete.  That situation will get worse as more people are automated right out of the economy.  The Luddite backlash is here again!

** CARS will drive themselves.  But more importantly, trucks will drive themselves.  This will eventually put 6 million more humans out of work (that is, truck drivers) and will have a devastating impact on the small Midwest towns supported only by servicing truckers (food, gas, and lodging).  The economy will change.

** Even white collar JOBS will fall to automation (with a heaping side of machine learning).  Retool now.  Learn to code.  Become a technologist.  We’ll need more techies than ever.  But don’t pick a field where repetition is the main thing or processes are clearly-defined and algorithmic.
Put simply, everything will be on the net, both chattering away about data it is gathering and automating parts of life that we didn’t even know needed to be Automated.  Security and privacy will play an important role.

Security is important, but FUD is bad.  Lately, there is too much FUD in politics, and much of it happens in the name of security.  Computer security still sells with FUD.  We need to change that.  FUD is corrosive.

Technology providers can no longer pretend that the tools they made are “just tools” without any moral or ethical implications.  As we learn more about information warfare, propaganda, and modern social networks, we’ll need to make some adjustments.

Though these themes may seem disparate and disconnected, they all share a common theme---software.  Automation by its very definition involves software.  In some sense software is eating jobs at an alarming rate, replacing people with bits.  Politics involves more software than ever. Even determining what the limits of our software should be turns out to be a thorny issue.  We will always need more than the ten million or so people working on software today to help us keep it under control and functioning in our favor as a species.  Women have been involved in software since Lady Ada Lovelace dreamed the whole thing up.  Software. Software Software.

At Synopsys software integrity group, we are the world leader in making software behave from ideation to deletion.  We must build security and quality into all of our code, or suffer the consequences of fate.
