Admiring The Poetry Of Code
Building A Walt Whitman #poetry Generator App
This is a follow up to my article on generating Walt Whitman stye poetry using Deep Learning: ▻https://hackernoon.com/i-tried-my-hand-at-deep-learning-and-made-some-poetry-along-the-way-2e35 I have been on an app-building role, I figured why not convert the model into an app as well. Once you have a trained Deep learning model, it can be a straightforward step to setup an app using it.My initial inspiration for doing this project was to participate in the NaNoGenMo series: ▻https://github.com/NaNoGenMo/2018This is an annual competition that runs in November where people try to train algorithms to write novels. Unfortunately, we haven’t yet cracked the puzzle to write something worth reading that long using an algorithm (every year we get closer though!).I settled on generating (...)
Esopo: Turing Complete Poetry - esoteric.codes
In AshPaper, the first Esopo language, elements of poetry become commands. Alliteration in consecutive words is a goto statement. Rhyming with the previous line compares registers and pushes to the stack a number corresponding to the number of syllables in the line or its predecessor (depending on the result of that comparison). Like many other esolangs including Befunge-93 and Piet, AshPaper is a stack-based language, opting to add values to the stack or manipulate them there, and thus avoid working with named entities like variables, which can be complex to represent when the signifiers of the language are not necessarily textual themselves, but very often structural.
