This is an interesting view. Back 30 years ago when I started to learn IT it was on 6805 circuit board and I was studying electronics and automation. There was no interaction with any UI, programs were more like micro-programs and autonomous. Then my last graduation was A.I. At a time where there was not yet the internet as we know it, I worked few years for a digital acquisition and processing company, but I never really used A.I and automation.
Windows made its debut and it became more attractive to use a screen, so UI IT became the main IT and the revolution of the internet came.
Maybe we are at the beginning of a new era where A.I and automation (as in autonomy) and interconnection would be combine... sounds a lot like a robotic era!
That could be an interesting future!

That reminds me of a manager I worked for. She could sling the vocabulary pretty well, and used the words appropriately. It was only after you got to know her that you realized she didn't understand a word she was saying. Ironically, this didn't reduce her effectiveness as a manager in the slightest, and she was one of the best people I've ever worked for.
