Because AI can readily offer answers, our job for innovation and progress is to ask great questions and explore deeper layers of problems. Problems that can't be answered by the collective knowledge AI has.
That way, we are forced to create new information and new answers that are beyond the AI's scope. Right now, we are learning to leverage AI, but soon everyone will, so the one who asks the best questions gets an edge over those who just leverage AI.
When AI can write great essays and pass exams with flying colors, students need to pivot and learn to improve what the AI does. This improves critical thinking and iterative thinking.
The human premium warrants money and appreciation for human effort that makes something better even when AI can do exactly the same.
Making Art: Just because AI can make art, it isn't as good as human art. AI doesn't carry a "story" behind it. For humans, the story behind art matters - who made the song, why? was there a break up? Is this is the last song by the artist? All of these make a song greater than just it's sound.
Human behavior is messy, full of errors, variations, and randomness. The smallest changes here and there make things exciting, like the odd curly fry or the extra sauce in a pizza or the slightly out-of-tune violin which guts your heart or the surprise variation in a live concert. Humans appreciate and love happy error. AI can't do this yet, not as elegantly as humans.
