I think this is a good way to think of it: "Picasso once commented on computers: 'But they are useless. They can only give you answers.' (But) when you are working with AI, getting the 'answers' is really the wrong way to use it, although in some limited ways, it can do that since it is also trained on Wikipedia. What it can really do well is to understand and express information through processes." This relates to Kye Gomez' Tree of Thought, "an approach to problem-solving that aims to map out the different paths and potential solutions to a problem." There's a lot of overlap with what AI does well: pattern recognition, iterative learning, non-linear thinking, and knowledge flow.
