Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning-driven software are evolving toward a technological advancement revolutionising the current global, social, and economic landscape. A major breakthrough in AI is the fast-growing natural language processing– based tools, where millions of euros are being invested in the development of software packages that automatically, and accurately, generate text. The impact of this technology in medical writing is immense. Will we be out of a job in the near future? In an optimistic (and perhaps realistic) point of view, one can argue in favour of a friendly interaction between medical writers and machines, with major advantages for the craft of medical writing.
