Talent vs Technology

Does technology remove talent or does it refine the way skills are applied. Watching a Netflix programme on a particular chef, they mused how some technologies have removed particular skills (talents) within their profession.

Thinking about my own field, motherboards used to be a dark art before all the nice colour coding and clearly shaped connectors that (should) only ever fit one way and one alone. Knowing your interfaces and how they connected used to be a talent.

I moot this to both chefs and technologists alike - are the loss of some skills a loss? Have they been replaced by other talents?
