The New York Times reports that Philip M. Parker has written more than 200,000 books with the help of computer software he created; making him, "The most published author in the history of the planet."

Parker, a chaired professor of management science at Insead, has developed computer algorithms that collect publicly available information on a subject. Then, with help from 60 to 70 computers and six or seven programmers, he transforms the results into books. The books cover a wide range of genres, with most titles being about 150 pages. The books are printed only when a customer buys one. Stats for Algorithm Authoring Trending: Older & Mild
