What if a computer could write its own code?
There’s already a bunch of research into neutral networks that can edit and design themselves. I remember seeing a Google talk about how they were using a master network to design slave networks which themselves were then trained, and they yeilded far more efficient and accurate results. I would not be surprised if large algorithms such as the infamous YouTube algorithm already uses these techniques. Many speculate there will soon be a day when all programming will be done by AI, we will merely need to supply a description.
