Bangkok Ipsum is a webpage that lets you generate random Thai text.
Sometimes I just want a random Thai text to test my designs with. But existing random Thai text generator does not produce a result that I like. So, I created Bangkok Ipsum.
It uses a simple n-gram probabilistic text generator, trained on a corpus based on lyrics from BNK48 and Sweat16! idol groups.
# 2018: Project inception
I built this project during The Stupid Hackathon Thailand #2 (opens new window) event in 2018.
# 2020: Updated model
In 2020, I updated the model to include phrases from more recent songs.
I also added an about page (opens new window) that explains (in Thai language) how the text-generation algorithm works.
