Google has another experimental tool that anyone can access and is called ‘Verse by Verse’. The new tool allows anyone to generate poems in the style of famous poets with the help of artificial intelligence. Verse by verse involves the input of humans and machines to make the final poem, which may be less than sensible, depending on how much you trust AI’s suggestions.
Poetry is apparently difficult, making it difficult to define the exact style or flow you were hoping to achieve. If there is a particular poet who serves as inspiration, Verse by Verse will help you to imitate his style – assuming he is one of the 22 authors offered by the tool.
Google introduced Verse by Verse on Monday, explaining that the tool was designed to “augment” the creative process by creating a poem, not generating it from scratch. Users must enter their first line and then move to the next line. Each additional stanza will produce several AI suggestions.
In our experiments, the suggestions were often a little pointless, but there is an inherent pattern that helps users connect with the nature of the poem without much work. Users can click on a suggestion they like and manually edit it in the tool.
Before starting the poem, users must choose their “muse” from a list of popular poets, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson and others. Users can give a title to the poem and finalize it; there are options to save the poem as an image or copy the text.
