It's certainly not there yet, but there aren't too many reasons why it shouldn't work out for certain niches. This for example feel somewhat human and shroomy to me: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/DeepDream

Genre detection by itself is also quite impressive, especially when compared to simple statistical methods.

This sector is evolving, new tools will probably turn out to be a great support for ME's. Better de-essers, better compressors and limiters, faster quality control, faster handling of low hanging tasks. It's just beginning.

In particular, a "translation evaluator" (i.e. how well the material will work on diverse systems and environments) would be of enormous help. Automated quality control, or automatic "track vs album consistency" helpers (often a challenging task with compilations, smart tools could prepare the operating room before the ME even drinks his first coffee ).

It looks like we'll have many little improvements along the way, not an "all or nothing" shock. The practical Limitations are just too strong (all AI systems are Turing machines, they carry the same fundamental limitations such as the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halting_problem).
