TLDR-ify producing a TL;DR of 'Major League Hacking'
Reddit and other forum bots that create summaries of posts or articles linked by users of the site. Currently studying Natural Language Engineering at Uni and wanted to implement something using this.
What it does
Creates a 3 sentence summary for any topic inputted by the user. For example, the user could search for something they want to learn about and receive a brief paragraph describing topic concisely. TL;DR in motion - gif
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Having a working webapp at the end of the hack using APIs
What I learned
JQuery API calls,
What's next for TL;DR-ify
To improve TL;DR-ify I would need to improve the method of summarising the topic inputted by the user. I would do this by searching more sites for the information to turn into the TL;DR. The natural engineering criteria determining what is important for the TL;DR could also be improved. Finally, if I wanted to extend it beyond an interesting website, I could attempt to use the base algorithms to create a forum bot similar to the ones that inspired my project to come full circle.
