by Brad Montgomery

Published October 15, 2016 in Programming

Presented at DevSpace 2016 -- Have you seen those funny accounts online that are strange, yet almost coherent? The twitter accounts like captain_markov & horse_ebooks, or the venerable King James Programming on tumblr?

They're generated by Markov Chains! This talk will take you on a journey into one of the original markov chain bots, dig into some python source code, and explain how markov chains work without using too many mathematical equations.
