Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater

In some areas AI/ML work really well because the data is too complex for a human to get their head around. A good example is cancer where there the data are massively multivariate, an example of this is the PAM50 classification for breast cancer, which as the name suggests, has 50 "clusters" with different outcomes, treatment regimes etc.
