Microsoft Research's latest project wants to help you be funnier in online chats

Microsoft Research has come up with a neat new web-based chat system titled "Cahoots". It's an interesting solution for those who require a helping hand in online chats to come up with witty responses and humorous images. The system from Microsoft will analyze text in your messages and suggest memes and reaction GIF images based on context to help make you appear as the next big thing in comedy.

Images are pulled from the likes of I Can Haz Cheeseburger, Microsoft's own Bing and, offering some real unique and sometimes hilarious experiences for the two parties involved. Unfortunately, we have no word as to whether or not Microsoft will release Cahoots to the public, but we'll be sure to alert you all should the tool become available.
