24 Hours, No Humans In The Loop

No humans means that tools must adapt and self‐tune, and never get stuck unexpectedly. 24 hours means extreme partitioning and decomposition of problems, leverage of cloud resources, and machine learning to enable predictable, single‐pass layout. Some mantras for us: be correct and safe by construction; embrace freedom from choice; and often, just one thread needs to succeed. We plan to lose quality, but win time, with partitioning and methodology restrictions. We’ll win quality back with machine learning and parallel optimization.
