Job market for (real) golden ears about to collapse
Up to this day, purely measurement based tuning of pianos was no viable option on the concert stage. But the rise of the machines seems to be unstoppable. 

A very interesting read, check it out.

I doubt anyone will loose business over this, the mechanics of piano tuning is most likely an art in it self. We might get better sounding pianos though. Nice find!

People who tune instruments professionally are generally also people the who repair them. I suspect that the percentage of musicians who play large instruments like pianos and organs will remain small simply because they aren't mechanics.

I wonder if electronic keyboards will eventually feature choices of stretch profile (tunings) to best match the key you're playing in or just preference.

I have a Roland RD-100 (10+ years old) which has stretched tuning profiles
