Going from thought to binary signals in a semiconductor has been one of the most significant achievements of the past century. The process worked this way:
- A vision forms in the head of someone of some end goal
- An algorithm is formulated to achieve this end goal
- Based on the algorithm, code is written in some human computer language, like C
- The code is then converted finally into a series of bits which can run on a semiconductor
Going forward, steps 1-3 is likely going to change from requiring a human agent to being easily performed by a computer with AI.
