Bret Victor: "Today, a Perl programmer needs just four letters to invoke decades of research into filesystems and physical media: 'open.' A finely-tuned mergesort is available with the word 'sort,' and even more finely-tuned hashing algorithms require just a pair of brackets. Until machine learning is as accessible and effortless as typing the word 'learn,' it will never become widespread."
