Drumpf Twitterbot learns to imitate Trump via deep-learning algorithm - CNET

Inevitably...

"The Twitterbot DeepDrumpf takes its name from "Last Week Tonight" host and comedian John Oliver who lambasted Trump on his February 28 show when he revealed the politician's original family name is actually Drumpf -- encouraging the hashtag #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain.

The Trump Twitterbot was created by MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) postdoc candidate Bradley Hayes, who used artificial intelligence deep learning techniques such as neural networks that teach computers to find various patterns in data.

"Trump's language tends to be more simplistic, so I figured that, as a modeling problem, he would be the most manageable candidate to study," Hayes said on the CSAIL blog."
