As Paul Graham, founder of Y-Combinator, has put it: "Hacking and painting have a lot in common … [hackers and painters] they're both makers." And as modern-day artists, developers will help create the future of cognitive computing and AI. New technology has granted them more paints and more materials with which to paint and sculpt.
