Nobody knows I'm a robot

At CNN, some MIT students used an automatic text generator to successfully submit an abstract to a CompSci conference. One gem, obviously indebted to my own soaring prose:

"the model for our heuristic consists of four independent components: simulated annealing, active networks, flexible modalities, and the study of reinforcement learning"

Got a problem with that?

Follwing revelations of the the author's true nature, the abstract's status has now come under review.
