Natural Language Generation + Statistics = A Funny Bogus Pundit Bot
I built a Twitter bot that combines natural-language generation with some funny statistics to generate bogus pundit-like predictions.
Since 1990, the G.O.P. has not lost the House in any year when Super Bowl attendance’s digits add up to an odd number, except 1992. — Pundit Bot (@PunditBot) March 22, 2016
The predictions are all true, but silly and not at all predictive. I wrote about it for Source and the source code is on Github (along with the source for SimplerNLG, a JRuby wrapper for SimpleNLG, an NLG project that I’ve contributed to.)
