Truth engineering deals with the necessity for a human-in-the-loop in terms of resolving hard problems. The computer cannot overcome vertigo, otherwise.
But, what type of person is required for this? All sorts of other questions pertain to the discussion.
So, let's start to look at intelligence among other things: The future belongs to the stupid (the blogger is a Professor of Psychology). I ran across this post in a Quora discussion. Seems like a good place to start (too, there is work being done - example: The Unz Review: An Alternative Media Selection).
I am proposing that, like Gardner of Harvard suggests, intelligence is multifaceted. The IQ test looks at a small portion. There may be 'smart ways' (perhaps, modes) that are not seen by the high-IQ. Or, rather, the higher IQ would require additional training.
And, not being controversial, broader scope for 'best and brightest' might be a wise choice on the part of society. What would that scope entail?
