It is not.  I don't know where you got that bizarre idea.

Offhand, I'd say the biggest (as in lines of code) remaining use
of assembly language are optimized implementations of cryptographic
algorithms.  However, the more popular the platform, the fewer gaps
there are to fill.

Oh, and a general piece of sad wisdom I have learned over the last
twenty years: If somebody needs to ask how they can contribute,
they can't.
