A weekend with Google AutoML Beta

Some time ago I built a site called slackernews.io to take the top-rated submissions from HackerNews and categorize them into newspaper sections. In this way I could focus on the ones I care to read while blithely ignoring the sections I don’t (cough election news cough).

This categorization was initially built using a machine learning classification model on IBM Watson. Unfortunately, IBM decided to make a breaking change to their API that would require me to rebuild the model and call it with brand-new endpoints (I thought the lesson from the success of Microsoft was to maintain backwards compatibility come hell or high water?).

Instead, I decided to spend the weekend hacking away on the newly announced (Jul 14, 2018) Google AutoML Natural Language Platform.
