Computers that create patents

] Technically, Stephen Thaler has written more music than

] Thaler, the president and chief executive of Imagination
] Engines Inc. in Maryland Heights, gets credit for all
] those things, but he's really just "the man behind the

This is rather amazing. The article makes what must be tremendous programming projects sounds very simple. They guy actually has neural networks inventing technologies.

This could really have sone serious consequences against the IE team at M$ and what really bothers me is that this is isn't even difficult to reproduce. You all might want to "view source" next time you are typing your credit card in an online order form.
