People are getting smarter. IMHO this is mostly due to improved nutrition and the fact that there are far less children with chronic infections today. These are the same reasons people are getting taller, and menarche is coming at earlier ages.

Unfortunately for the job outlook the machines are getting smarter too.

But human increases in intelligence may be most noticeable in ways that
computers don't do well.

The combination of smarter people and smarter machines should indicate that the future could be very bright. Alas, politics is as dumb as ever.
