“’The real value creation, especially in the technological revolution, is not just from the engineers but the people who connect the humanities to technology, or the arts to science,’ he said.
Isaacson said that theme appeared consistently as he researched specific technological advancements and how they came to be. That includes Alan Turing’s early work in artificial intelligence, Apple’s development of the Mac computer and iPhone, and Larry Page and Sergey Brin’s creation of the search engine Google.
In each of these instances, Isaacson said, technology alone has not come to completely replace human behavior or human intelligence. Instead, technology has become more tightly tied to human behavior and intelligence and helped to advance them.”
