The Jokester

Description: Artificial intelligence technology is transforming many services and brain capital based industries – it’s time for comedy writing to get some help! The project should take a subset of jokes (political, raunchy, self-deprecating, etc) and a subset of video medium combining audio and visual data (laughs can be the positive reinforcing event) to create a tool to help joke writers. The project does not need to pump out a good joke every time, but should try to write something every once in a while. It could also take some data from the writer to come up. Google and Amazon already have great toolkits for this kind of thing.
