The idea, as some have posited, is that we will end up becoming dumber as we rely more and more on AI, from the workplace to ordering our groceries. If it were true that humans are as programmable as a computer, this might be somewhat valid. Fortunately, it’s not.

Some journalists and pundits predicted Google and search engines in general would make us stupid. They too, have not and aren’t likely to.
