Software can identify author's gender.
A new computer programme developed at Bar-Ilan University in Ramat Gan, Israel, can determine whether a book was written by a man or a woman.
The software scans key words and syntax to identify the writing style and is claimed to be 80% accurate on both fiction and non-fiction.
It can also differentiate between fiction and non-fiction and can tell the two genres apart with 98% accuracy, reported the science journal Nature.
