Sonnet Composing Computer

In addition to penning 37 plays, William Shakespeare was a prolific composer of sonnets — crafting 154 of them during his life. Now, more than 400 years after his death, the Bard’s words are influencing a new generation of poets. It’s just that these writers do so with silicon imaginations and digital quills.

A consortium of researchers from the University of Toronto, the University of Melbourne and IBM’s Australia division have managed to teach a neural network to craft sonnets just as the Bard did in the 16th century, using his own words to teach the machine. They published their results at the 2018 ACL conference, and you can play around with the network itself over at GitHub.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
