"Siri, what is the solution to the coronavirus crisis?"

I think the lozenge key probably served its purpose well back in the 1950's, but today I think what is needed can be found in the IBM motto: "think". It seems to me that too many young people don't know how to think effectively and have become too dependent on things like Siri (and whatever the Google equivalent is, I know they have one). I have no doubt that a vaccine for our current crisis will be the result of many scientific people exercising the "think" function. I anxiously look forward to that day.
