Now you may ask, how can robots write poems?

A while back, I created the Google Poetry Robot, which suggests words to write next by looking at popular phrases on the Internet that use the last few words you typed. I even got one of my robot-assisted poems published in a poetry magazine (SFU High Altitude Poetry), and that's when I got excited. You can try the Google Poetry Robot for yourself by clicking here.

Of course, with the power of modern text-to-speech technology, it's pretty easy to get a computer to read a poem. But interestingly enough, each robot "voice" seems to take on a character and personality of its own, and it is sometimes pretty hard to shake the feeling that the robot might actually mean something.
