Since Midterm I had been toying with the idea of the News headlines as tellers of what the future will hold for the world.
In order for the project to display I would need to have some serious machine learning skills to code my AI...but I don't so I actually made a muckup by devising a very simple conversation tree.
Which creates answers based on the user imput provided by the buttons taht become available as the conversation advances.
The answers are part written text and part headlines from the New York Times top stories extracted through New York Time's API
The text and categories selected for the conversation tree were inspired by this article on The Harvard Review about the main reasons why people read the news. Drawing from it I tried to create three conversation tropes, with the goal of keeping users engaged with the system through providing the feel of a real conversation they would have on "The Future" and world events.
This project will be deffinetly keep on being worked on. So any pointers towards any help advisement or mentorship is greatly apreciated.
