Subject: First machine-generated book published Dear Colleagues, Springer has just published a machine-generated book. https://aktuelles.uni-frankfurt.de/englisch/first-machine-generated-book- published/ I suppose the text makes a certain kind of sense, but some of the sentences and paragraph involve problematic grammar and jargon that is comprehensible only to a specialist. On one hand, there is something fascinating about this. It demonstrates that a machine can gather useful information. So far, it suggests that a machine can learn to write prose that equals poor technical writing and the worst legal and administrative writing. Interesting. Ken Ken Friedman, Ph.D., D.Sc.
