OPINION: Open Source Software Is The Greatest Form Of Altruism A Software Engineer Can Be

— Although the meaning of “Hack The Planet” has changed since the movie “Hackers” was released, the new call maybe should be “Save The Planet With AI”. Even our systems have become way too complex and widespread to know if we can still trust them.

What have we learned? Here is an interesting article, perhaps we need an “AI software hacker specially trained to review all our code submissions”? Or will someone try to build the opposite, an evil hacker AI? Or have they already?

And who is “They”? Our government, their government, your competitor, your enemy, just a nasty individual, all of the above and more.
