CAHOOTS is a system that suggests funny memes for a chat conversation. A user engages in a chat conversation, and CAHOOTS creates funny memes and offers them to the user directly within the web-based chat platform. CAHOOTS learns from the user’s selection in an attempt to provide funnier, more relevant meme options.
‘Inspired by internet users who generate their own memes pictures through meme generation website[s] and then use them in conversations in social media sites like Reddit or Imgur, [CAHOOTS’] meme generation strategy writes the last utterance on the top and bottom of a popular meme template. A meme template is an image of a meme character without the captions. The template is chosen using a machine-learning trained classifier to pick the most suitable meme template image based on the last utterance.’
