    A future where literally no one knows how their software works sounds terrible

        That’s literally the entire end goal of supra-human organizations like governments and corporations, and why the American constitution is built upon reigning in their powers. Obviously their system has become corrupted in recent times, but that was foreseen and accounted for.

      Senior dev here: it’s already like that.
      I know how my code, and the code of everyone under me works.

      I have a good idea of how the systems I run the end result on work.

      But under that layer there are several more layers between that and hardware that I only have a faint idea of.

        Everybody in tech relies on some level of abstraction. Crazy-smart hardware engineers are no exception, they’re not dealing with fundamental electricity stuff. They wouldn’t be able to deliver the advanced chip designs we take for granted today if they were.

        This was already true before LLMs.
