NY Times Robot Generates Haikus Of Their All Articles
Poetry is no longer a past time undertaken only by humans in this innovative way of accessing the news.
The newspaper’s senior software architect Jacob Harris has built a robot, or rather designed an algorithm that uses the text from articles in The New York Times to generate a Haiku.
For those who don’t know, a Haiku is a form of short Japanese poetry consisting of a set number of syllables. Normally 5, 7 and 5 although this isn’t set in stone due to the differences between English and Japanese. The main premise is to have a point in the poem where there is a sudden shift or cutting motion.
