The goal of my RWET final was to produce something that referenced current news headlines but incorporated text from fictional worlds like Star Wars and Adventure Time.
Things I was thinking about while working on this:
- I mostly read news
- Headlines tend to favor “man bites dog” narrative
- Increasing concern with “fake” news and propaganda
- Fire hose of news online
I mainly used the Spacy natural language processing library to accomplish this although I tried a number of different approaches.
