NOT GOOD: Algorithm may one day be able to alter Bible’s style for its audience

(FOX) Computer scientists have used various editions of The Bible to develop an algorithm that identifies different author’s writing styles, Inside Science reported.

The researchers — comprising computer scientists and mathematicians from Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and Indiana University – said they used 34 English language versions of the New and Old Testaments to develop the system.

A long-range goal is a possibility of altering the Bible’s style for its audience, a researcher said. One day, a computer algorithm may be able to, for example, use the text that Ernest Hemingway may have written to alter various Bible verses.

The Bible was chosen, the researchers said, for its being the most cited literary text in history. The text comprises 31,000 verses and 1.5 million unique pairing of words, according to the report.
