Technology continues to advance in ways never before imagined. It is nearing exponential growth or, depending on who you ask, it’s already there. There are, of course, obstacles to the future advancements, but if programmers continue to learn new methods technology will blossom like a flower opening to the sun. However you view it, tech will continue to move forward whether you like it or not. Below are some of the ways that programming will enable that to happen.
New Programming Languages
When you are a programmer, you work with specific languages. These programming languages are not stagnant, however. Not only are there many new languages to learn, it isn’t yet clear how they will enable programmers to make their work more efficient and streamlined.
Some of the languages include Elixir, Go, TypeScript, Python 3, Reason, and many more. As a programmer, it never hurts to learn more languages. It will only make you better at what you do. We don’t yet know how these languages will be used to further our programs and therefore our technological capabilities at large.
Functional Reactive Programming
Functional reactive programming is a type of code writing that reacts to how the passive code changes. FRP programming offers new abilities for coders to streamline their coding, even when it is asynchronous. In proactive models, the modules control each other directly but in the reactive models they control themselves and hook up to each other indirectly. This is obviously a cursory description that doesn’t fully describe this programming method, but programmers everywhere are learning FRP and using it to make their code simpler and more effective.
Swift Programming is a programming language developed by Apple that is pushing their technology. When you begin learning Swift you’ll find out how to organize data with the common standard library collection types while defining custom enumerations, structures, and classes and handling errors with the throw/catch pattern. Furthermore you will understand object initialization, lifetime, and memory management and learn to deal with the absence of values. Swift doesn’t only enable you to do all of the above, it facilitates flexible code with protocols, extensions, and generics.
Of course one of the biggest advancers in coding is AI programming. MIT researchers have developed a general-purpose language to work with computer vision, robotics, stats, and much more. Artificial intelligence is still in its infant stages, but with new programming languages and techniques, our world will change quite a bit. It will lead to all kinds of advancements that’ll change the lives of people everywhere.
Machine Learning Programming
A close relative of AI, machine learning is an area of computer science that works with several languages to develop decision-making technology without writing manual code. This is done by programming algorithms that do the job for the programmer, but have to be created carefully to get the job done. With solid machine learning programming, technology can learn from itself to get better and better at whatever it is doing.
Nearly everything in our society will be related to how technology advances. Programming code is one area that will continue to move forward and get better. For all intent and purpose, programming is still in its infant stages. Tech will evolve and we are not sure of its limits. Are there limits?
With so many languages and new ways that machines can write the code we need to get things done, there is no end in sight. For all we know, coding will change so much that today’s programming becomes unrecognizable.
While we are already aware of some of the changes that advanced programming will produce, this is completely unchartered territory. No one knows for sure what will happen and how this will pan out, but we do know that programming machine learning and artificial intelligence will lead to changes in our world. The future will be easier and more productive, but how will the ease of machine learning programming give the machines the control over our destiny? How will technology change humans? It already is. We can only stay tuned to watch how it will develop and augment the world around us.
