The media is full of speculation about AI replacing jobs from truck drivers to doctors. One job that is probably safe for the foreseeable future is that of the geodynamicist. All of the problems that plague geoscientists - incomplete data, missing bits of physics and lack of sufficient computer power - are even more of a problem for machine learning studies. AI may not be the magic bullet that is often promised, but by approaching a problem with the awareness of the statistical considerations required by machine learning, we may be able to make our geodynamical studies more intelligent even without AI.
