I wrote - Captain Kirk of the starship Enterprise is 90 or the
original actor to play him is.
But that’s not what appeared in print.
I write occasional articles for several professional journals. One in
particular runs 2 or 3 new articles on its web site every day. That
requires a lot of new articles which is presumably why I have enjoyed
a high success rate in getting published. But this volume of material
must also require a large editorial team. Only I suspect it doesn’t.
My suspicions have been raised by some idiosyncratic use in type size
and wrong sounding sentences. I think this is an example of AI editing.
AI attempts to correct what it perceives as human error. Is this an
omen. One day AI will be making decisions in place of air traffic
control or the operation of nuclear power plants at which time
correcting perceived human error would have far more dramatic
consequences than a wrong sounding sentence.
