• 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

    radiant blumptiferous replurg
    hurls near the putrid jandleturt
    what slurps this

    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!
