Inspiration & What it does
Fake News are all the rage right now. Inspired by that, we created Alt-News, a Fake News Generator!
How we built it
We use Twilio to receive calls just like 911, then provide the transcription into IBM Watson's Language Tools and do some magic with their NLP tools. The output is then sent to our twitter account at https://twitter.com/altnewsdotpress
Our amazing domain name is powered by Radix!
Challenges we ran into
Speech to Text and NLP are not perfect
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
Sleep is NOT overrated.
What's next for Alt-News
The Moon, of course. Actually, scratch that. Next Stop: Mars!
