The difference is that human brains have context processing capabilities and awareness which computers don't have. The need for a computer to have human brains as part of its system just tells you straight up that its integral part is human decision making. That's what makes it dependant on humans. Now, I wouldn't find that so shocking as Choe's reaction suggests, because humans already get to decide things like policy, public safety etc. Computer-assisted decision making, that's fine, but I'd find it more disturbing if solely computers would get to play with my fate.
