Will AI replace humans in the near future? That’s one of the raging questions these days. Machines nowadays are getting smarter and more advanced, so much so that they have actually started outrunning human mind. Or have they? As smart as these machines are, there are still some areas that essentially require human intervention. Take ePublishing for example. While many believe that artificial intelligence is likely to take over activities like report writing and raw content analysis, it is very unlikely to replace high-level decision making tasks like editing. But what AI can definitely do is increase the productivity of the editorial staff. Repetitive tasks that don’t require creativity can be offloaded with the help of AI.
