The Autocomplete Works of William Shakespeare

Spinning in his grave …

A humorous reworking of scenes or indeed entire plays from the Bard's work, edited so that it appears that the author simply accepted the first suggestions from an autocomplete engine, to hilarious effect.

       I thought this would be a kind of monstrous spellcheck add-on, so when you type a single letter on your keyboard the machine autocompletes with whichever of the Works of Shakespeare starts with that letter. If no complete work starts with that letter then it uses an act, or a speech, or a line, or a single word. Only after failing to find a single word match does it shut up and allow you to continue typing (until you press "space" and start the next word).

       This is a bard idea.

       The idea that you could make an accurate model of a persons mind is interesting.   

       A whether simulation based on known experiences, facts in life, biological tendencies, historical events and of course writings might be able to compute possible completion. Of course this is a few generations above an Intelligence in a box. I don't think binary could do it, more like a quantum machine with multi-factor deep learning algorithms and of course a ton of data.
