Teca Arantes (No chance) says
Since this is a job that depends highly on creativity, I think there is little chance that AI will replace it in the near future... I am not saying that this cannot change in ten or twenty years, mind you... AI is changing rappidly and we cannot predict to what extent the development of this kind of intelligence it will attain.
