Oliver Burkeman:

I agree with the AI boosters that there’s no reason to assume AI won’t match the output of a human in any given field. But this misses the point. The point about a good novel produced by a human (or a song, or painting, or dare I say it, an email newsletter) isn’t that only a human could ever have produced it. It’s that a human did in fact produce it.
