Created by scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, its stated aim is "to maximize amusement, rather than coherence."Many physicists would agree that, had it not been for congestion control, the evaluation of web browsers might never have occurred.
In fact, few hackers worldwide would disagree with the essential unification of voice-over-IP and public/private key pair.
SCIgen is a computer program that uses context-free grammar to randomly generate nonsense in the form of computer science research papers.
All elements of the papers are formed, including graphs, diagrams, and citations.
Here’s what I found: What I found was a fascinating list of topics, with many of the expected fundamental papers like Shannon’s Theory of Information and the Google paper, a strong showing from Mapreduce and machine learning, but also some interesting hints that augmented reality may be becoming more of an actual reality soon.
The top graph summarizes the overall results of the analysis.As the SCIgen website states: One useful purpose for such a program is to auto-generate submissions to conferences that you suspect might have very low submission standards.A prime example, which you may recognize from spam in your inbox, is SCI/IIIS and its dozens of co-located conferences (check out the very broad conference description on the WMSCI 2005 website).I was surprised to see this paper as number one instead of Shannon’s information theory paper (#7) or the paper describing the concept that became Google (#3).It turns out that interest in this paper is very strong among those who list artificial intelligence as their subdiscipline.His conclusion was that "a reliable gibberish filter requires a careful holistic review by several peer domain experts".The pseudonym "Herbert Schlangemann" was used to publish fake scientific articles in international conferences that claimed to practice peer review.In fact, AI researchers contributed the majority of readership to 6 out of the top 10 papers.Presumably, those interested in popular topics such as machine learning list themselves under AI, which explains the strength of this subdiscipline, whereas papers like the Mapreduce one or the Google paper appeal to a broad range of subdisciplines, giving those papers a smaller numbers spread across more subdisciplines.The organizer of these WMSCI conferences is Professor Nagib Callaos.From 2000 until 2005, the WMSCI was also sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
