PEAK INTERNET ACHIEVED: @DeepDrumpf Is An AI-Powered Twitterbot That Tweets Like Donald Trump.

@DeepDrumpf is the creation of Bradley Hayes, a postdoc at MIT’s CSAIL (Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab). The bot uses a technique called deep learning to recognize patterns and create new content from what is has absorbed.

@DeepDrumpf has been fattened with transcripts from addresses, victory speeches and debate remarks from Trump. The stuff it tweets could give nightmares to Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, Trump’s top two rivals on the campaign trail.

“The algorithm essentially learns an underlying structure from all the data it gets, and then comes up with different combinations of the data that reflect the structure that it was taught,” says Hayes.

Skynet is turning out to be a lot classier than anyone had ever imagined.
