For over 100 years, experience has been the holy grail of utility work. Will AI replace knowledgeable employees? No. Yet, AI is causing a shift -- adding new ways to discover insights formerly only available through experience.

I think it'll also go further than that-- not just insights formerly available through experience, but also generating new insights that even the experienced employee may have missed (and perhaps even stubbornly disagreed with if the data wasn't there to back it up)!
