Surely, instead of trying to replace programmers with deep learning systems, we should be focusing on replacing lawyers and politicians...

Consumer devices have no place in a corporate environment unless you can remotely back up / wipe corporate data and all stored data is encrypted by default.
I'm aware that it's not a company phone/tablet/gizmo but it's the company's data/IP/reputation you're putting into the hands of people that will happily ignore data security and platform availability in order to play the latest rule 34'd version of angry birds.
So yes I fail and I'm proud of it.
Surely we should be looking for repeatable results gained from rigorously tested experiment designs rather than picking a side and *believing* it's the right one. We should be having rational, well informed discussions rather than these rabid, theological style debates. This is science not religion, belief you are right has no place.
It's like watching two groups of creationists using holy science(TM) to try to prove their point.
And for full disclosure:
Climate change: It's happening
Ability of humans to cause changes to the climate with of CO2: Unproven (by either faction)
During the previous census, the staff, employed to step-in when the OCR process (often) failed, were trained with the mantra, "If in doubt space it out". If they struggled to read your answer, it was discounted. In this instance you'd end up classified as "Religion - Other (Not specified)".
If Jesus came back he'd probably tick the "No religion" box too*.
* Based on the reasoning presented in Dogma.
1. Form two teams, number of players is inconsequential for the purposes of the game.
2. Each team shall then be installed in underground bunkers.
3. Each player has a number of options:-
(1) "Nuke 'em all"
(2) "Nuke 'em all (I didn't vote, it's not my fault)"
(3) "Let's do this with tanks instead"
(4) "I don't want to play any more, can I go home"
Playing the Game
4. Each player on each team MUST vote for one of the above options in each round.
5. At the end of each voting round any player selecting option 4, for the second time, is excused from the game (does not apply to team leaders).
6. After each round the option with the lowest number of votes is removed.
7. Voting continues until one option receives 90% of the votes. This is the winning option.
Winning the game
8. Once both teams return a winning option proceed as follows:-
Option 4 - release all team members
Options 1,2 & 3 - detonates nuclear devices in their own bunker
So pick your team and go outside and play, leaving the rest of us free from angry rhetoric, propaganda, politics, religion and childish "but so and so did X first" finger pointing.
"The Holy Grail is the consumer, seduced by must-have gadgetry that they'll bring into work and that their company's IT departments then have to run and support."
So we're to abandon all reason and leave decision making to the style over content brigade?
Some how I think not.
