  • Patent number: 10382367
    Abstract: One or more computing devices, systems, and/or methods for commentary generation are provided. For example, a conversation, occurring through a conversation interface associated with a content item, is monitored to identify a tone of the conversation (e.g., users discussing a news article). If the tone deviates from a target tone (e.g., a negative tone of inflammatory comments, a low participation tone, an off topic tone, etc.), then intervention is automatically and programmatically performed for the conversation. For example, subject matter of the content item, information from external sources (e.g., other articles, social network posts, or website content associated with a topic of the news article), and/or programmatically generated information (e.g., topical statements generated by a neural network) are used to construct a comment. The comment is posted to the conversation interface in order to improve the conversation, such as to increase positive engagement by users.

  • Publication number: 20180004718
    Abstract: A fact machine receives a comment string from a webpage and segments the comments into sub-conversations. The fact machine also identifies entities within comments or draft comments as well as a sentiment and/or attributes associated with the entity. The fact machine then queries a knowledge base for facts relating to the entity, the attributes, and/or the sentiment. The fact machine then provides the facts to a user prior to the user posting a draft comment.
