Localhost: Python 3 Markov Chain Bots

Monday May 25, 2020

Event Description

In the third workshop in this Python series, participants will feed their data into a Markov chain bot. They will compare the quality of responses from data scraped from Twitter (a small data set) to data retrieved using the Twitter API (a larger data set). At the end of the series, participants will have a fully functional, deployed Markov chain bot of the celebrity of their choice!
