A robot editor?

I read this article today about how robots being created to help people with personal tasks, such as taking care of the elderly in their home, picking fruit, performing medical treatment…Why not make robots that can edit? What was really intriguing is that the article mentioned making robots, which would have emotions. Hello, RTD2 and C3PO. Surely these robots could be programmed to recognize errors with writing mechanics, spelling errors, typos, organization and even provide feedback. Of course the price to pay for one would be much higher than a cost of a copy editor. But thinking about it in the long run it may be a bargain.
