Obviously Dr.M. is putting a lot of work and his personal time into this AI process step.
My own limited experience w/AI uses in management decisions and process planning is that AI presents opportunities to OPEN WIDE any/some new thinking. Areas of new interest present them selves as much more rationally-easily understood when such AI tools are available. Data becomes much more critical/available.
Questions get asked which may not have presented themselves w/o AI tools w/fields of reasoning and even new links previously not seen will likely appear. Let's face it , the WHAT IF scenarios being presented by AVXL have not been understood as even legitimate questions till now.
IMO, there is a reason why Dr.M. has selected this path using AI as compared to many others which have likely presented them selves. I just have a sense he must see this path as worth traveling.
