Human physiognomy also changed, especially when the Industrial Revolution's full potential was realized. Sedentary lifestyles produced visibly different people. The Industrial Revolution was driven by mental activity.The technological revolution now underway is generating a different sort of replacement. Many tasks that once required human intelligence – making connections and drawing inferences; recognizing patterns; tracing the implications of complex events – are now better handled by AI applications. The search is on to discover and control for characteristics of the human mind that could produce distorting, unproductive or inefficient results.The ability to perform complex calculations or sophisticated analyses will be far less important.Just as the Industrial Revolution made most humans physically weaker, the AI revolution will make us collectively duller. In addition to flabby waistlines, we will have flabby minds.
