An Academic Turing Test?

Check out the Turingesque website arXiv vs. snarXiv, which presents the titles of two science papers, side by side, but only one of the titles is “real”, i.e. is an actual title selected from a paper posted on a popular electronic science journal (arXiv).  The other title, by contrast, consists of a random series of words and symbols generated by a computer (snarXiv).  Can you tell, for example, which academic title below is the fake?

First-order hat tip: Richard Van Noorden. Second-order h/t: Tyler Cowen (item #3).
