TDD is essentially what AIs do; we just don't get to see how they're doing it.  So it's one of those things that computers do really well, but is not for people.

It's the same as with data and information:  Computers deal with data, people deal with information.  If you try to blur that line, things go wrong pretty damned quickly, because computers can't deal with information (because they don't understand it), and people can't deal with data (because their brains switch off, so you end up with systems that are heavily bogged down with dehumanising processes).

So leave data-crunching AIs to crunch data, getting results TDD-style (with humans providing information on what's correct and incorrect), and let humans do development human-style.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
