    And blacksmiths. Carpenters, maybe, too.

    Probably a symptom of trades where books serve as reference for acceptable solutions.

    Science on the other hand has gone to teaming for large and important problems parcelling out bits of uncertainty among many expecting an agreed upon results that work thereby keeping human controlled use of computing.

    Unless someone has means to access every problem this approach should be good for as longs as humans exist.

    Although if and when problems are resolvable by size and automation I see the possibility that even this avenue will begin to decrease human involvement.

    MY view is we need another means for getting humans to feel they are participating in society for their and it's betterment than through work and commerce. Maybe handing out credits for humans in a society or endeavor in proportion to computer betterment of life by some formula related to association of particular human to computer which produces betterment. Symbiotic relations seem important for humans as do feelings of worth.
