If you put a computer in charge of solving some decision-making problem, keep in mind that computers can't make decisions.

You are actually putting programmers in charge.

And if that doesn't terrify you, go ask a programmer how much they trust software.

What if we're really bad at interviewing programmers, in part, because classic employment models are a poor fit for software development work?

I wouldn't be surprised if "team" was the minimal useful contributor unit for work beyond a certain small scale.
