The disappearance of local news outlets has brought many dire consequences that range from increased corruption to news manipulation through fake news.
What it does
It generates a content based on the user (reporter) input then it's hashed and put into a syndicate contract, there reporters can claim ownership and receive payments system a logarithmic growth scheme
How I built it
I used Tensorflow and Texar to generate the news, flask to serve the content, truffle. MetaMask and ganache to deploy and test the contracts
Challenges I ran into
Getting a decent dataset was tough, and computer power for the training as limited
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The content is decent enough for the limited amount of time
What I learned
Self generated content is a BIG problem that need to be addressed ASAP
What's next for Newser
Win the hackathon!!!
