Will AI Really Be The Death Of Human Intelligence?

Since AI became a topic of considerable study in the 1960s, it has suffered from a multitude of false hopes. The big breakthrough was always just around the corner and AI would inevitably transform society. Numerous papers predicting the demise of work as we know it have been published.
