The famous writer William Shakespeare has always been entwined with myths and legends, but not all of them are positive. And that's where artificial intelligence (AI) comes in.

Shakespeare scholars know all too well the problem some politicians have with their doctoral theses. Doubts are regularly expressed that he at least did not write some works on his own. Regarding his classic "Henry VIII", AI has now unmasked the co-author. People have always claimed that the provincial playwright was far too uneducated to have written such brilliant plays himself. The machine proves them right: the real authors behind the name Shakespeare are Edvard de Vere, Christoper Marlowe and even Francis Bacon. That's how the AI got it.
