Computer proof assistant is a tool, that by using computation, is able with "certainty", verify and build new proofs from underlying specified axioms (Lean4, Coq, Agda, etc...).

Resolves YES if before the end of 2040 there is a trustworthy poll/evidence that shows more than 50% of professional mathematicians use or rely on it.
