Google has unveiled an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based web app that will create a poem portrait for you.

Called “POEMPORTRAITS,” the online collective artwork is a combination of poetry, design and Machine Learning (ML).


“A ‘POEMPORTRAIT’ is your self-portrait overlaid with a unique poem, created by AI. You can create your own and contribute to the evolving, collective poem,” Google said in a blog post on Thursday.

To create your poem portrait, donate a word of your choice and take a self portrait.

Each word you donate will be expanded into original lines of poetry by an algorithm that’s trained on millions of words of 19th century poetry.


“Artificial intelligence is now one of the fastest-growing areas in all of science and one of the most talked-about topics in society.” VOA

“You’ll then receive a unique POEMPORTRAIT of your face, illuminated by your original lines of poetry. All of the lines of poetry are then combined to form an ever-evolving, collective poem,” said Google.

Es Devlin, a famous artist and stage designer, collaborated with Google Arts and Culture Lab, and coder Ross Goodwin for the project.

Ross trained an algorithm to learn to write poems by reading over 25 million words written by 19th century poets.

“It works a bit like predictive text: it doesn’t copy or rework existing phrases, but uses its training material to build a complex statistical model. As a result, the algorithm generates original phrases emulating the style of what it’s been trained on,” said Google. (IANS)

Robots evolve to do more work around us

As robots evolve to do more work around us, the UK-based humanoid robot manufacturer Engineered Arts has infused more human-like facial expressions into one of its robots, which may leave you with an eerie feeling.

In a video posted on YouTube, the robot called 'Ameca' displays various human expressions, like appearing to "wake up" from sleep, as its face shows confusion and frustration when it opens its eyes.

Microsoft has disrupted the activities of a China-based hacking group, gaining control of the malicious websites the group used to attack organisations in the US and 28 other countries around the world.

The Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit (DCU) said in a statement that a federal court in Virginia granted its request to seize websites of the hacking group called 'Nickel', enabling the company to cut off Nickel's access to its victims and prevent the websites from being used to execute attacks.
