#intersections  of science, poetry, and growth
 
"I normally don’t invite poetry into my daily life. As an ecologist, I embrace science. But all I had to offer her at that point were the thoughts of others who struggled to make a meaningful life and had put those thoughts into the best, sparest words they could." http://nyti.ms/1EA9aYS

Computer-generated poetry. Sounds a lot like when Siri waxes philosophical to me.
 
Well, I think poetry is safe so far, but you just never know...

Zackary Scholl, a PhD candidate in computational biology has developed  a form of AI that will generate poems.  Check out his blog entry about this work that includes the story of getting a poem pushed in an academic journal, and also (!!!) includes a button giving you the ability to generate your own poem right now!

http://goo.gl/Jmxs5y

I tried it and some of the generated images were remarkable.  Others were just hilarious:

My first click yielded a poem title of "Everyday you crystallize."  Not bad!  But then came the first line...

"It was the fortnight of the turkey..."

Oh well. I don't think the soul is yet in the machine.  But it's still a remarkable achievement and a lot of fun.  Here are a few lines and images I did like, generated from several different attempts:

"The son smiles at the man
but the astronaut does not smile
when he looks at the oyster man
and the blood-stained ocean."

and

"From the universe of your full mysterious
wave of wave of droplets rolling down the sea."

and

"I was without doubt the sailor bird
there in the lewd divisions
when it looked at me with its slender writing eyes:
it had neither arm nor hand
but diamond corals on its sides."

Why not generate a few of your own images and share them here in the comments -- funny or strange or delightful -- your choice.
