now writes fiction, I can tell you that I see no need to worry about computers writing reasonable fiction for a LONG time unless there is a quantum leap forward in the development of artificial intelligence well beyond what anyone expects at the moment.
Most financial reports are in a series of set formats with very basic layouts and content, so easy to do. I'd love to see if the current software is any good at doing the fictional style financial report needed for things like government agency estimates and additional estimates to get support for project funding, or doing the creative work sometimes needed to account for money that got blown because some big boss screwed up and we're not allowed to blame them in the report - mainly because they're the one it's going to.
Anyway, all of those are very different to writing a good and entertaining fiction story.
