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.

“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)

Tata Trusts’ initiative Social Alpha said on Tuesday it has entered into a partnership with Google Developers Launchpad to support social impact start-ups in Indias growing start-up ecosystem.

The partnership – Social Alpha Powered by Google Developers Launchpad – is designed to help start-ups gain access to resources including expert mentors, tools, and methodologies for building businesses that can drive meaningful impact on the technology ecosystem.

This initiative will enable Social Alpha to create learning programmes based on information and resources aggregated from a select group of the world’s top accelerators.

Social Alpha will also access Google’s global network, insights from the company’s Silicon Valley-based start-up programmes and Google’s research and best practices on building businesses, products, and teams.

“As we continue to build and grow the lab-to-market ecosystem for high impact innovations in India, our portfolio companies need access to world class technologies especially in the areas of data science and machine learning,” Manoj Kumar, Founder and CEO of Social Alpha, said in a statement.

“Our partnership with the Google Developers Launchpad program will address this gap, and help unlock the immense potential that resides in these start-ups,” Kumar said.

This partnership will focus on supporting start-ups that have the potential and / or are already incorporating Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Technologies in their work.
