We wanted to use IBM's bluemix for some real-time application using firebase.
What it does
The Reddit bot /u/chattrbot will reply to posts in /r/chattrbot. This conversation is visualized in real-time on An Azure hosted web-app. We use IBM's Bluemix Watson text-to-speech to convert the conversation to audio. You get to hear the conversation as it happens!
How I built it
ChattrBot was built using a combination of IBM's BlueMix, Microsoft's Azure, and AngularJS.
Challenges I ran into
Learning how python runs on a server was definitely interesting when you don't know anything about python to begin with.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
What's next for ChattrBot
We would like to use IBM's BlueMix Watson Dialog to generate the responses more intelligently.
