AI can measure photo quality and take "infinite" number of photos, then based on selection will select best shots.
Imagine ball with lenses floating around, then from 100k pictures 100 is selected, based on "rememberability" and other defined patterns trained from famous photographers.

I think e-commerce photography that is very technical could be replaced by robots but from my experience, I think it very unlikely and hard to imagine that robots will do better than agency talents for editorial/creative photography
