Read Google’s First AI Poem, After Catching Up On Romance Novels

Remember the problem Google had with its AI? The fact that it wasn’t as conversational as they wanted? They thought the solution resided in romance novels so they put it to work. Now, after thousands of books read, the artificial intelligence spurted a poem #machinemagic

The team behind the AI gave the machine a start and end sentence, wanting to see how it would fill in the gaps. The result was a dark, sad, confusing poem you can read below:

No.
he said.
“no,” he said.
“no,” i said.
“i know,” she said.
“thank you,” she said.
“come with me,” she said.
“talk to me,” she said.
“don’t worry about it,” she said.

it made me want to cry.
no one had seen him since.

it made me feel uneasy.
no one had seen him.
the thought made me smile.
the pain was unbearable.
the crowd was silent.
the man called out.
the old man said.
the man asked.

he was silent for a long moment.
he was silent for a moment.

it was quiet for a moment.
it was dark and cold.
there was a pause.
it was my turn.

there is no one else in the world.
there is no one else in sight.

they were the only ones who mattered.
they were the only ones left.
he had to be with me.
she had to be with him.
i had to do this.
i wanted to kill him.
i started to cry.
i turned to him.

The team said this is early work still, in the defence of their AI. They will continue this educational process until the machine can interact with humans naturally and fluently. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens when the machine is face to face with Sci-Fi works or cime fiction books…
