Behold the auto correction robot: AutoRaja!

devadutta @ 1:41 am, GMT +0000 ( 1286847704 ) Play

We have some really exciting news! We have successfully deployed a robot called “AutoRaja” on our servers which automatically moderates questions at the end of 3 days, assigns points and posts the answer!

AutoRaja uses a very sophisticated fuzzy search method to detect correct answers and assign points! (It is based on the Bitap algorithm, no less!)

Thanks to AutoRaja, from now on,

  • Scores will be up to date
  • Medals will be assigned on time and
  • Most importantly, answers come out automatically, so you dont have to wait!

Like all robots, AutoRaja can not yet replace humans, so we will review points assigned manually too. Until we do the review, you can see a note left by AutoRaja stating that the post was modded by it and not by humans. So, in case there is a discrepancy in scores, you know why.

Let us know what you think!

Also, we can make this project open source, if we get at least 50 comments on this post asking us to do it. Cleaning up code to release level is hard work :)

    Sooper name saar!


  7. @Ananth: You surely can! AutoRaja will mark you wrong, but we will mark it right when we manually review the post.

    each post will be reviewed after AutoRaja does its job :)

    Good idea!
    Open source for WordPress? Or for a larger audience?

    I assume all solves will pretty much require a distinct term and not an “Either X or Y are acceptable.”

    Please make it open-source!

    Super stuff.
    And the name is mighty awesome too.


  14. Trademark BB, right from the concept to nomenclature :)
    Brilliant work!

    Do make it open source (although release level stuff is indeed a pain) :-|


  15. @username: Yes, you will be initially marked wrong, but later we will mark you right when we look through the post manually. So you can keep up your habit :)


  16. Awesome! An alternate, but equally awesome, name would’ve been Chitti! :P
