The world has gone soft.
And by soft, we mean software.
Point is, software has become omnipresent in every modern electronic and communications device. And it's capabilities grow further each year, as tasks once relegated to hardware become possible with digital design. Look to software defined radio or soft sensors as prime examples.
Meanwhile, AI and machine learning technologies are being deployed more heavily, and are poised to upturn everything from automobiles to manufacturing to healthcare.
And other topics, from blockchain to facial recognition to CAD software, all have additional influence.
None of this is possible without legions of software engineers, developers and programmers, experts in a very unique, very critical technical discipline.
