A point made by Morten Rand-Hendriksen: We software engineers are not real engineers. Unlike other kind of engineers, we do not have to follow industry code of conudct like meachincal engineers or civil engineers. We are just a bunch dudes that learned to use tensorflow on stackoverflow. That is why our work is dangerous and we can always just "be told" what to do for money.

Airplanes could not be built like that. Calling ourselfs "engineers" is misleading as it suggest we follow some ethics or code of conduct. It will hurt us on the long run.
