Well... I think coding has changed the world entirely for more than 50 years. One of the most important problems for the world was the communication and now thanks to coding and others important areas this problem seems to have been overcome (not at 100%). And it happens with others problem like medicine area. But not only code can resolve every problem (its a great tool for the world). It's more will and love for each others that can beat the big problems we have.

Some problems that you mention can not be solved directly with code, it is impossible. What we can do is create new jobs and systems that minimize or help combat those problems. But again, that will not be a concrete solution. And even then some of those tools can be used to violate the things against which they were created, an example of this is the use of encrypted messages, which have been used to plan things that threaten the lives of other people. This thread can be very controversial, but I hope that people do not wear it that way.

The question isn't whether it can or cannot solve "real-world" problems. The question is: "Will the greed and selfishness of mankind ever shrink to an existence less-enough, where real-world (code-influenced) solutions aren't thought to be as rare as they are at the present time?" I tend to think outside of the box at times, lol. We invented programs and the art of programming. Therefore, we govern what it's capable of. It just so happens that not everyone's agendas are aligned. ;P

the real problem is that many of the problem you mentioned exist only because few rich people can gain from that. until we change people mind and we learn to don't think at personal gain we cannot change or solve anything. only people wo don't search personal gain and work for wellness of all can change the world. anyway coding can help those people to work for a better world

some of these problems can barely be solved at all but modern AI is becoming capable of coming up with solutions infact, Google's AI is currently working on fighting diseases, and some other things listed here

As others mentioned in this page coding has changed the world and with it people can do many thing easier than before. Maybe is a way to build new world. I think coding can help us to solve major problems but this need government assistance and budgets, too.

There is only one thing computer don't have : virtues. We need virtues to solve all the problems listed (except diseases).

Biel Blue Actually, everything what you've mentioned above can be solved with coding. The obstacle is that the companies do something profitable first, and they focus on customer demand. But sooner or later coding will do everything, including not profitable projects. How soon, I don't know.
