Spring Research publishes first book written by machine

Spring Research recently published the first book written by a non-human. The machine algorithm was developed by AI researchers at the Laboratory of applied computational linguistics (ACoLi) of Goethe University in Frankfurt (Germany). Lithium-ion batteries is not intended to overshadow the works of authors such as John Grisham or J.K. Rowling.

The book does not contain interesting characters, live dialogue or an  exciting plot. It provides extensive information regarding research in  the field of lithium-ion batteries. Over the past three years, more than  53,000 articles on the subject have been published.

Based on the requested subject, the algorithm uses machine learning to analyze all publications, and then sorts only those that are relevant. It then analyzes, condenses, and organizes these preapproved, peer-reviewed publications from Springer Nature's online database into successive chapters and sections, each focusing on a specific aspect of the research.

The book is probably best viewed as a reader's digest for scholars and researchers. It is easier to read 180 pages of a book than hundreds of thousands of articles on the Internet.
