I am tired of guessing the future of AI. What I am sure of, something routine like this used to take significantly longer than it does today.
In the past:
- Google a bit; maybe find someone asking a similar question somewhere (hopefully, do not get distracted by something else).
- Goto the docs (which often took Google to find)
- Try and find something related to what you were doing.
- (Sometimes) Apply what you learn in step #3 to your problem.
Now, we are back to a quick search, which is kind of like Google in the old days.
