This is Artificial Intelligence (AI) at its best. Google is known for introducing or sponsoring something weird yet innovative. The tech giant has come up with another interesting AI project called 'PoemPortraits', which is a web based application. The users can use this new web app for creating a unique 'PoemPortraits', which is an image of the user's portrait overlapped with a poem generated from a word suggested by the user. Google aims to change the perception with an AI algorithm that can write poetry and then overlay the same over a selfie giving the portrait some beautiful artistic effects.

Designed by an artist - Es Devlin, the PoemPortraits is technically a convergence of machine learning, design and poetry as mentioned in an official blog post. This ‘PoemPortraits’ project was developed in collaboration with Culture Lab Team and Google Arts. New Google Feature Will Allow Users To Auto-Delete Location History & Activity Data: Report.
Moreover, this web application can be called a digital version of photo booth. It is basically an Instagram filter that is paired with some AI-generated poetry. Well, here's how this new AI art project works. The Google's new AI art project asks the user to 'donate' a word and take a selfie. The word donated by the user will be expanded into original lines of poetry by algorithm that been trained on millions of words of 19th century literature. The appearance will be illuminated by these original lines of poetry that are brought together for forming collective poem. Google Chrome Bug Can Allow Phishing Attacks Using 'inception Bar'

Es Devlin mentioned that, "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."
