PoetBot



  • Just having a bit of fun with AI in hyperPad. Not sure where I’m going with this.

    PoetBot is an Artificially Intelligent (or not so intelligent) poet that composes mostly bad (unless you’re a Vogon) poetry with a nature theme. Sometimes an interesting poem appears like:

    night falling
    silence sleeping
    moon rising
    shadow creeping

    Several styles of poems are created including 2-line couplets, 3-line tercets and Haiku-ish poems, 4-line quatrains, Lune form poems (3 words, 5 words, 3 words), and Lantern form poems (1 word, 3 words, 5 words, 3 words, 1 word).

    The vocabulary words are stored in several arrays, one for each type of word (nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc.). Currently there are two themed vocabularies, a Nature them, and for those who like really bad poetry, a Vogon vocabulary. But be forewarned, Vogan poetry is the third worst in the universe!

    Vogon PoetBot examples:

    the fetid yellow liverslime…
    in the putrid tinklewort
    a coagula has burped

    the
    radiant blumptiferous replurg
    hurls near the putrid jandleturt
    what slurps this
    snot?

    Finally, if you branch the project and go into the scene titled “Other” there is a label “Arrays” with empty noun, verb, and adjective arrays where you can add words to create your own themes. Then add a button to the main menu page to goto your themed poetry page.

    Have fun!
