Do you feel that the late-19th/early-20th centuries were a special time in physics, in that great leaps of intuition (i.e, Einstein) could have a much more profound impact than would be possible today?

I've often wondered why we haven't had another Einstein, and I think it's because we've learned so much that such leaps are much more difficult for a single person's intellect. Do you think that the next big leaps in physics will come from AI working in tandem with humans?
