Fake paper detector

Lot of us have heard of some MIT students who wrote a computer programme to generate scientific papers. Their fake paper was even accepted at "The 6th Annual North American Symposium on Methodologies, Theory, and Information".

Recently researchers at the Indiana University School of Informatics have come up with an Inauthentic Paper Detector to foil it. You can try some testing on the system here.
