One interesting thing about this kind of work is the legal side and the 
question if a process as described there is a derivative work of the 
training data used.  If you are tempted to answer that with a 'no' you 
should keep in mind that while most work on so called AI methods these 
days concentrates on data processing after training you can equally try 
to use such methods more like a memory device.
