It is not every day that a technological feature can provide a ticket for a research conference. With the iOS autocomplete, submitting an investigative paper makes it certain that the study will be accepted.
For an individual who has nothing on nuclear physics, completing an entry for an international convention can be either a miracle or just simply predestined.
The odds of having credentials in Human Interface Technology and making it to a discussion on Atomic and Nuclear Physics are probably ranged from zero to none which is why Christoph Bartneck needs a difference maker right there and then.
The crucial element comes in through the iOS autocomplete feature. Typing the words, Atomic and Nuclear, have opened things up for the Associate Professor from New Zealand's University of Canterbury.
As the system pour out suggestions, Bartneck simply connected the words until his research paper is finalized. During the process, the autocomplete function manages to churn out sentences such as, 'Atomic Physics and I shall not have the same problem with a separate section for a long, long time' or 'Power is not a great place for a good time.'
Whether there is any sense of brilliance in those words or the ideas presented are plain nonsense make the whole situation baffling. It is even more surprising to know that Bartneck has added Wikipedia stock art and other academic notes to complete the paper.
After submitting the research under a fake identity, the professor never expected a reply. The attached information portrays Bartneck, who nicknamed himself as Iris Pear, as a lecturer at Umbria Polytech University. What comes next is even more perplexing since within three hours, an acceptance message surfaced. To top it off, the email is an automated response.
As part of the registration process, the associate professor needs to pay US$1,099. He feels that a session honoring a ludicrous paper is not worth attending.
