Is computer science a failing discipline?
Computer Science is a failing discipline.
Computer Science has continuously failed to deliver solutions to the most common and relevant computing problems.
Computer scientists can make their own jobs obsolete (and others too, but besides the point) by creating an AI to do their jobs for them.
If one were to make the common mistake of equating Computer Science with software coding and application development, this might be true. The demand for coders will fall as advanced languages and application frameworks make programming more of a clerical than a technical task.
The fast pace development of computers means that it's too difficult to establish a discipline of it that won't be outdated within a few years.
Hardware limitations and market entrenchment will ultimately lead to there being no economic demand for new or changed software.
The undecidability of the halting problem
limits strongly what computer science can achieve.
The current studies of Computer Science can be improved, and the cumulative errors of not teaching well are very dangerous to our society.
The relevance of computers to everyday life is constantly rising.
Evolving applications of a discipline do not in themselves render the discipline itself obsolete.
Some of the highest paid jobs in the world are being given to computer scientists.
Computer science is one of today's most rapidly developing scientific branches.
Computer Science curricula include the mathematics and logic that underlie software, so can survive radical changes in system and application technology.
Technology constantly builds upon itself, and as such, it becomes more and more complex. Computer science allows us to understand the new technology around us as well as build off the foundations that are in front of us.
If Computer Science were a failing discipline, we wouldn't have computers or any software to run on them.
It’s unclear what “failing” means or what requirements are needed not to be a failing discipline.
Is Linux the best operating system?
Is citizen science beneficial to science?
Is science political?
