Computer-Generated Poetry Competition

The Neukom Institute at Dartmouth College recently held its annual PoetiX competition, where judges assessed whether ten carefully-selected poems had computer or human authors. Unsurprisingly, the judges had little trouble differentiating the human poems from their machine-written counterparts. The NPR podcast linked below discusses why automated programs cannot write perfect sonnets and will also let you compare human and software-generated poetry.
