Future mastodon bot: have it scrape out and read sentences from toots and then convert them to a set of the most basic predicate-argument relations, feed these into an embedded prolog interpreter, then take toot replies asking questions about the text. Kinda like IBM Watson, but in real time and with the context limited to individual toots (at first).


This isn't that insane to implement either, I have most of the hard parts thanks to @mainsa giving me ideas and giving me some example code. This is implemented so far at github.com/Xe/x/tree/master/la, but more parts will be split into other components as complexity demands it.

This is a Mastodon instance run by the Interlinked Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit devoted to eliminating discrimination. We are an instance that blocks authoritarian political violence, ultra-nationalism, fascism, the alt-right, Stalinism, and authoritarian ideology in general. It's intended to be a safe place for those tired of violent rhetoric as well as a place safe from discrimination.
