The point: today’s AI programs wouldn’t choose Steve Jobs for the job/jobs he had. The AI programs in use today are really filter and high level analysis tools.

Resumes aren’t typically worth much more than a few minutes of your time, and yet Steve Jobs’ 1973 resume sold for $174,000 as if it were a piece of art–and in many ways it is. But it’s not its poetic allure of his hurried handwriting or the comedic indifference in Jobs’ responses that make it worthy of six figures.
