What you need to know
- Google highlighted Verse by Verse, a new AI-powered tool for creating poetry.
- Verse by Verse has been trained by a large body of classical poetry to the point where it can generate new lines in the style of the greats.
- You'll be able to imitate a wide range of classic poets from Emily Dickinson to Edgar Allan Poe.
Google today shared Verse by Verse, an experimental AI-powered tool for creating poetry with a twist. Using this tool, you can pen a poem that would imitate the style of classic poets, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, and Paul Laurence Dunbar, among others.
Google's Dave Uthis explained:
You won't just be recreating lines already written by one of these poets. Verse by Verse's suggestions will be wholly original, the company says. The AI has been extensively trained by exposure to a large collection of classical poetry to the extent that it can now attempt to predict what these poets would have written if they were the ones currently penning your literary masterpiece.
Google says this experiment is intended to show how much AI can enhance the creative process. Last week, the company shared another tool with the same idea — albeit aimed at 3D artists. You can try out Verse by Verse here.
I'm guessing we'll get less Keats or Robert Burns and more Dr Seuss or Lewis Carroll.
