What it does
A twitter bot that will respond to a word given with a haiku generated around it!
How we built it
It was created with the Python Natural Language Toolkit as well as the Twitter API and the TwinWord Word Association API.
Challenges we ran into
Generating the bigram collocation dictionary takes a lot of time! We implemented caching and generated a bunch of collocations already.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
I'm proud of using the NLTK since it's the first time ever doing anything related to natural language processing.
What we learned
How natural language processing works
What's next for Tweety Haiku
Trigram implementation and perhaps weaning it off Haikus onto other forms of poetry, such as limericks.
