London: Philip M Parker has developed a series of computer algorithms that could automatically generate books, crossword puzzles, articles and even poetry.
Parker`s company, Icon Group International, has produced more than one million titles, which were printed on demand, ranging from books on medicine to Indian bath mats, however, it might be at the opposite end of the publishing industry to the bestsellers list, but it has profit, reported.

The economist at graduate business school INSEAD said that it was a means to an end to overcome certain market failures, to cover topics that human authors could not or would not ever cover, yet for which there was a need.
He further added that automation was a method of reducing the costs of production, a common issue in all industries.
