I was thinking about this, I wonder if the next big generational tech divide will be between those who are used to interacting with a smart learning algorithm and those that aren't.

I grew up on the cusp of experiencing my first computers with BASIC as a built in easy to access program where you quickly learned the computer will do whatever you tell it to, and only what you tell it too, even to the detriment of the computer or user. Whereas today's teens experience computers and the internet as often having a 'smart' system in between them and whatever they're accessing.

I could totally see the future version of setting the VCR clock being how to sweet talk an AI or retrain a learning algorithm.
