Looking for your next startup idea ? Markov's incubator allows you to generate startup pitches using Markov Chains. This experiment uses real pitches from real startups
Markov's incubator uses Markov chains to generate pitches.
Let's take a simple example. If one pitch is "Our startup is the best" and another is "Our startup rocks", we'll deduce that "startup" is followed by "is" or "rocks" each with a 0.5 probability. To generate a new pitch, we'll start with a random word and use these probabilities to find the next words.
You can find a much better explanation here
The pitches come from the Vivatech 2017 edition: therefore they are mostly from French startups. I tried to mask the names of the companies, but some may have slipped.
Design is (heavily) inspired from a Google Experiment
The heart of the generator is a JS port of the wonderful Markovify
