Artificial (non)Intelligence

Check out this story of a prank pulled by some guys at MIT who wrote a computer program that generated a jargon-filled academic paper, then submitted it for a conference.

Gee, that's not fair! Now all these people at conferences will have to actually read & understand the submissions before accepting them for publication.

I actually read about that before you posted it...I think it's great that they are challenging the system like that! Too often we blindly accept work as truth...we need to question the origins and factual basis for things more than we are now.
