I agree with your overall perspective here, but could you clarify your
theory on the evolution of algorithms? Are you suggesting artificial
intelligence (AI) will drive the rapid development of information
retrieval (IR) algorithms? If so, do you have any evidence? If not,
why will human-created algorithms evolve faster than humans? Thanks!
