Reminds me of computer-aided cancer detection: The doctor first examines
a radiographic image without computer aids, and only then examines the
computer's suggestions for possible cancer sites. That way, the
computer's suggestions (like the spell checker) don't prejudice doctors
and prevent them from finding what the computer missed.
