Want to compose a poem? Here’s a Google tool that can help
Meet ‘Verse by Verse’ -- an artificial intelligence (AI) based tool that will help users write a poem verse by verse.
Composing a poem isn't easy, especially if you don't have the creative skills required to write one. Now, Google has devised a tool that will help you craft a verse in the style of America's most renowned poets.
Meet ‘Verse by Verse' -- an artificial intelligence (AI) based tool that will help users write a poem verse by verse. Google says that Verse by Verse ‘is a creative helper, an inspiration—not a replacement'.
Users who want to compose a poem, will first have to select the poets whose style they want to replicate. They can select up to three poets from the list that includes Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Edgar Allen Poe, HW Longfellow and others.
Once they have selected their style and picked their poem's structure, the tool will ask users to compose their first verse. It will then suggest more verses based on a variety of factors, which includes the verse that users' have written, poet select and the selected poem structure among others. Google says that it has trained its AI system to provide suggestions in the style of each individual poet to act as your muses while you compose a poem of your own.
Once you select the verse suggested by Google, it will suggest some more. The tool, however, will not lock the suggestions. Users will be able to replace the tool's suggestions with their own verse and edit the suggestions to make it more personal. Once users are satisfied with their poems, they can give it a title and finalise it. “We give you two options: copy the text itself, or download the poem as an image. In either case, you can easily save the poem and share it with others,” Dave Uthus, Software Engineer, Google AI wrote in a blog post.
“Verse by Verse's suggestions are not the original lines of the verse the poets had written, but novel versus generated to sound like lines of the verse the poets could have written,” he added.
So, time to get creative.
