5 STARS is a computer text generator that automatically generates feedbacks and reviews for online services such as Amazon, Yelp, Expedia, etc.

This project is inspired by the large number of notifications we get from our computer and phone telling us to give feedbacks on things we have purchased or services we have experienced.

And then I used Max Woolf’s textgenrnn Recurrent Neural Network library to train on the sources texts.

Here are the results I got for the 4 different context: Merchandise, Resturant, Travel Experience, Lodging.
