Skynet for Beginners - Using a Neural Network to Train a Ruby Twitter bot

Rin Raeuber

@rinpaku

According to common knowledge Skynet went online on August 4, 1997. Suprisingly, we haven’t heard anything from it since. Maybe because it’s still struggling with the color of that dress. Or maybe because it was written in Excel VBA.

Either way, how about we apply some of those fancy sounding artificial intelligence techniques to the game problem of writing a twitter bot?

This talk will introduce you to artificial neural networks in an accessible and fun way.

Disclaimer: Might contain traces of code. Self-Awareness not included.
