[...] Codegeneration is the worst solution [...]
I want to code in Uncertain#. Why stop just at textual source code? Why provide the source code as audio or video to the compiler. Why not just have a video chat with the compiler where the compiler could ask additional questions or clarifications for the problem being presented. The frameworks may help but compilers are the ones doing the actual processing. We will get there, step by step, creating software on the way to get us closer to the Artificial Intelligence assisted Compiler.
What do you think?

Data mining is a powerful new technology with great potential to help companies focus on the most important information in the data.
Information visualization is a research area that focuses on the use of visualization techniques to help people understand and analyze data.
[...] Visualization is the biggest bandwidth we have.
[...] Charts are data visualization.
[...] Auto updating charts need to be prepared to handle edge cases like peaks.
[...] Diagrams have been done for a while now.
[...] Encoding by position and by color.
