Websites that Create ThemselvesOriginally published on 8/13/2023
I’ve been wanting to experiment with creating websites that have automated content generation using AI. So I built Not Yet News, a satirical news website with articles set 100 years in the future, loosely based on today's headlines.
My brother Steve came up with the name and quickly threw together a logo. I played around with prompt engineering and discovered that it works best when you have a unique seed to provide the OpenAI API so I made a script that gets the current headlines from the NYTimes API. The tricky part proved to be finding a good service to execute the long-running node script that generates the content.
I wrote more in-depth about it in How to Build Dynamic Websites Powered by Automated AI-Generated Content on Medium.
