Today's programmers are not trained to write efficient code (i.e. massively parallel) using good tools, or even in making good technical decisions. The goals of "cheapest available coders" won, so now they will need to develop AI programs to generate this kind of code becuase today's group of lowest-cost "programmers" certainly cannot do it.
