"Let me answer your question with another question. Is it not reasonable that given the near universal access to the data that others will have concluded there is much to be gleaned from the assumption that important clues are slipping through the filtering and obfuscation?"

Without the automation, the flood of signals would overwhelm any reasonable analytical capacity.  And even with it, one cannot be very sure of its accuracy.  Still, a deman was/is evident. Not for traditional goods and services but something heretofore less tangible, collective efficiency.

"We'll make it up in volume.", just a short time ago, was a common joke. Now one could argue it is rapidly becoming the prudent path. A little dedication from each of a lot of folks plus some clever software running on a globally deployed platform - a potent agent for net-useful change in the age of limits.
