AIs better at advice?  That does not surprise me.  But - who is doing the
rating?  Who says they are any better at judging advice?  Excellent advice
is often worthless because it is not followed (probably not followed more
than followed).  The proof of the pudding is changes in client's behavior.
 No glimmer of that data being collected here.
