Poetry Generator

Last week, Google launched its AI poem generator, PoemPortraits.  How  does it work? It’s really quite simple. The generator asks you to input, or “donate,” a word to be produced into an algorithmic couplet, as lifted from millions of words supplied by 19th century poetry.The generator is the latest in the exploration of how storytelling can be automated, expanded, and experimented on using technologies of the present and future.

I tried it out with two words: spring and star. The results were not impressive, and even a bit amusing. Give it a spin yourself right here.
