Poetry generation system with an emotional personality

Poetry generation system with an emotional personality

This video was recorded at 5th International Conference on Computational Creativity (ICCC), Ljubljana 2014. We introduce a multiagent blackboard system for poetry generation with a special focus on emotional modelling. The emotional content is extracted from text, particularly blog posts, and is used as inspiration for generating poems. Our main objective is to create a system with an empathic emotional personality that would change its mood according to the affective content of the text, and express its feelings in the form of a poem. We describe here the system structure including experts with distinct roles in the process, and explain how they cooperate within the blackboard model by presenting an illustrative example of generation process. The system is evaluated considering the final outputs and the generation process. This computational creativity tool can be extended by incorporating new experts into the blackboard model, and used as an artistic enrichment of blogs.
