"Computers are useless. They can only give you answers" is a dictum generally attributed to Pablo Picasso.

"In conclusion, QI believes that this quotation originated during a conversation between William Fifield and Pablo Picasso. However, the phrasing given in the Paris Review in 1964 was not ideal for memorization and transmission. The initial statement used a pronoun for the pivotal referent; hence, it was not self-contained. Even Fifield did not like the phrasing and offered another version of the quote in 1982."[1]
