A working draft of a poem book that explores computers and language. Each piece in the collection is passed through IBM Watson’s Tone Analyzer to examine how the artificial intelligence AI software program interprets my writing. Most of the pieces come from my Medium account where I’ve posted poems and other writings during a break up of a long term relationship, settled into Minneapolis, Minnesota, and worked to find a job. Each piece is dated. The work in these two documents are similar, one is a Acrobat .pdf file and one is a Microsoft Word .docx file. I am going to transition away from writing independently for a while, and explore writing poems with the IBM Watson Poem Generator mentioned at the end of the document below. The details of how this poem generator was made can be found at this Medium article. Next task is to learn how to modify the code of the poem generator and to incorporate it and its modifications into phone and web apps. The code for the poem generator can be found on Github.
