Topic:  Are Models becoming smarter than Modellers?

Models in software applications are becoming increasingly more sophisticated. Artificial Intelligence is becoming visible in all areas of our lives.

How is all this affecting the use of models, interpreting outputs, dealing with uncertainties and translating model outputs into practical solutions?
