Dangerous corruption of language. Data is stuff you measure. Test data is fair enough: an input intended to test your black box, but it's only useful if you know what the output should be - and that's a problem for the Believers in AI because by definition you don't know what to expect. But "synthetic data" is just lies - fake news with numbers.Pilots or operators of other machineries are commonly trained with simulators, which is a form of generator of synthetic data. As long as its limitation determined beforehand, it's still useful in most situations.
