@armatav I love this.. Where do you source this from and how do you filter them?

@amrith right now it’s all the happy posts on reddit - I’m currently working on a sentiment analysis solution that will pull articles from literally everywhere and clear them as happy. The problem is that I can’t find a “good” API or library for JS.

@amrith @armatav Why not using google news w a filter for sensationalist words? There is a lot of sources on the internet that you can use to select this kind of words. For eg. this blog about persuasion: https://www.thepersuasionrevolut... Also, Tensorflow is a good starting point to train a text classifier AI: https://www.tensorflow.org/hub/t... You could combine your sources and build a dataset. (Sensationalist Words) So all the news that doesn't classify as 'Positive' are automatically skipped.

@amrith @idgm5 That's a really good idea - let me see what I can do! Getting rid of articles with sensationalist words would be a great start.
