Software developed by an Israeli team is giving intriguing new hints about what researchers believe to be the multiple hands that wrote the Bible.
The new software analyzes style and word choices to distinguish parts of a single text written by different authors, and when applied to the Bible its algorithm teased out distinct writerly voices in the holy book.
The program, part of a sub-field of artificial intelligence studies known as authorship attribution, has a range of potential applications â from helping law enforcement to developing new computer programs for writers. But the Bible provided a tempting test case for the algorithm's creators....
As a computing person myself I would have to ask how does the algorithm work I would also be scheptical was this the result that they were trying to produce as there is no third party data such as a novel or other book it does not verify the application of this tool It also does not mean that one author can use different writing styles Another problem is the presuppositions that are being placed before the software even runs As a Christian I believe in 1 isaigh and that Moses wrote the Torah
