Assignment 1- Tanushree Mediratta



The system I chose was an online thesaurus- Thesaurus.com. The original input word was ‘candy’. This word was chosen randomly. Once this word was fed into the system (the thesaurus), synonyms were generated. The first word from this list was chosen and fed back into the system. One rule that I applied to prevent an infinite loop was to exclude any word that I had already chosen earlier. The end result was a word that had no relation with the original word whatsoever. Thus, destroying the original word and its meaning through feedback.
