Randomly Generated Paper Accepted to Conference
    #4055198 - 04/14/05 04:44 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Some students at MIT wrote a program called SCIgen - An Automatic CS Paper Generator. From their website: SCIgen is a program that generates random Computer Science research papers, including graphs, figures, and citations. What's amazing is that one of their randomly generated paper was accepted to WMSCI 2005. Now they are accepting donation to fund their trip to the conference and give a randomly generated talk.

Weird, I generated one and it made no sense at all.

What is so impressive about this? So they have a bunch of papers and it randomly puts any name you want as the author?

LOL, no they are just gibberish like this abstract i generated.

Quote:

The Internet and DNS, while structured in theory, have not until recently been considered practical. in our research, we verify the deployment of wide-area networks [9]. We propose an analysis of virtual machines, which we call UnrestyDicky [9].




If you ignore the grammatical and punctuation errors, it is still really bad.

Reminds me of monkeys, typewriters, and infinity.

Keep plugging away at that link and soon you'll have your history mid-term ready to go.

The entire paper is generated by the computer. Your name is actually
the only part of the paper that isn't generated on the fly when you
click the button.

edit: Think of it as a bullshit-tron.

I bet that would go great with a badly-rendered computer-generated voice.

The first sentence was an interesting and original big-brotheresqu? idea about public-privite collaboration for visual sensor networks. The second sentence made me not want to read any further: "Given the current status of omniscient symmetries, leading analysts dubiously desire the robust unification of the UNIVAC computer and 802.11 mesh networks"...
