Turn Your Face into a PoemPortrait

PoemPortraits is an online web application that takes a word of your suggestion and combines it with a selfie to create a poem portrait. It’s very much like an Instagram filter paired with a few lines of artificial intelligence-generated poetry. It’s fun, and it only takes a few minutes to create one.

PoemPortraits is a collaboration between Google’s Arts & Culture Lab, coder Ross Goodwin, and Es Devin, an artist. When you enter a word on the application, the algorithm looks for patterns by reading over 25 million words written by 19th century poets in order to generate a poem. It works like predictive text and doesn’t copy or rework existing phrases.  As a result, the algorithm generates original phrases imitating the style of what it has been trained on.
