Will Copy-Generating Computers Replace Healthcare PR Pros?

The most depressing story I’ve read in months.  Is there hope for the future? Steve Lohr in the New York Times:

Experts in artificial intelligence and language are also impressed, if less enthralled. Oren Etzioni, a computer scientist at the University of Washington, says, “The quality of the narrative produced was quite good,” as if written by a human, if not an accomplished wordsmith. Narrative Science, Mr. Etzioni says, points to a larger trend in computing of “the increasing sophistication in automatic language understanding and, now, language generation.”
