Google lastest AI(Artificial Intelligence) project is named as PoemPotrait. It uses AI to write a unique poem based on a word of your choice. The poem is then superimposed on a selfie you snap in your browser.
Artist and Designer Es Devlin and Ross Goodwin from the Google Arts & Culture Lab teamed up to form PoemProtrait. Goodwin tested the algorithms at the center of PoemPortrait by having it read more than 25 million words from 19th-century poems. At this point, human users come in by heading over to the PoemPotraits site, you can donate a word to the project and can then experience an AI generated poem in that 19th-century style because AI was trained on that algorithm. Devlin writes:
“It works a bit like predictive text: it doesn’t copy or rework existing phrases, but uses its training material to build a complex statistical model. As a result, the algorithm generates original phrases emulating the style of what it’s been trained on.”
How to use PoemPortraits:
To get started, visit Arts Experiments with Google and tap ‘Begin’. You will then be asked to ‘donate’ any word of your choice, using which the AI will generate a poem for you. Then you’ll need to click Continue. Users then have the choice of taking a selfie (you will need to provide the requisite authorization or permission to use your device’s camera), upon which the AI-generated poem is overlaid, or they can Skip this, and just get the poem text. They can then choose to save the portrait as a PNG file to share as they please.
This web app is basically a digital photo booth, and as Devlin wrote in his blog post, the poems it produces can be “surprisingly poignant, and at other times nonsensical.”
