I have smart people.” At first, it was tweeting pure nonsense. It still doesn’t make total sense, but it seems to be getting at least a little smarter. Tech Insider talked to Hayes, and he confirmed our hunch: with help from a process called deep learning, DeepDrumpf converts data into an algorithm that it can understand. Deep learning helps the bot to improve (or speak more like a human), because it is continuously learning from itself. “As I get more data to…
