Poems About Things

Description (in English): 

Poems About Things is a project that generates poetry from everyday objects around us. It consists of a mobile website that constructs quirky sentences about the objects it sees through the users camera feed.

As the user's camera focuses on an object, a built in machine learning model gives its best guess as to what object it is seeing. Based on this estimate a short query is sent to Google Suggest API, which in return sends back a list of sentences inspired by the detected object. The poem appears on the screen overlaying the image of the object. It consists of a handful of sentences expressing thoughts, questions or comments related to the immediate object as well as the bigger world outside it.
