What Would I Say

Too lazy to think about what to say on your next Facebook status? No worries, because there’s an app that will do the thinking for you. It’s called “What Would I Say?” and it’ll generate a status that you can post on your profile with the click of a button. The statuses are random, but they’ll all be tailored to your posting habits. That’s because the app works by going through your past post history and doing some mixing and matching to come up with a brand-spanking new status.

Technically speaking, it trains a Markov Bot based on mixture model of bigram and unigram probabilities derived from your past post history. All computations are done client side, so only your browser ever sees your post history.

The web app was created during the Hack Princeton 2013 Hackathon by Pawel, Vicky, Ugne, Daniel, Harvey, Edward, Alex, Max, and Baxter. Its popularity has skyrocketed and they’re putting it to good use, too, as they’ve added a link to donate to the Philippines’ typhoon relief fund on their website. Check out the app here.

As luck and a whole lot of work would have it, Hazel got her cake and is eating it, too: sifting through endless paperwork during the day while blogging for various tech and gadgetry blogs during the night.
