Shakespearean-style sonnet co-authored by Android keyboard app
Here is what happened:
SwiftKey, mostly known for its popular Android app, marks a new breed of keyboard apps. It’s a machine-learning technology, designed to give you better word suggestions based on your typing history.
So, after SwiftKey engine was trained on Shakespeare sonnets, J Nathan Matias wrote the new one, choosing words from the next-word suggestions generated by SwiftKey algorithm.
The result can be read below.
When I in dreams behold thy fairest shade
Whose shade in dreams doth wake the sleeping morn
The daytime shadow of my love betray’d
Lends hideous night to dreaming’s faded form
Were painted frowns to gild mere false rebuff
Then shoulds’t my heart be patient as the sands
For nature’s smile is ornament enough
When thy gold lips unloose their drooping bands
As clouds occlude the globe’s enshrouded fears
Which can by no astron’my be assail’d
Thus, thyne appearance tears in atmospheres
No fond perceptions nor no gaze unveils
Disperse the clouds which banish light from thee
For no tears be true, until we truly see
