Postproduction expert Larry Jordan, considering a series of recent technology advances including increased automation and machine learning, recently wrote the essay,

"I'm Worried About the Future of Editing."

"Over the past 18 months that leads me to believe automated editing will be a common reality in two years or less," he says.
