In collaboration with artist Kristian Glenn we have put together this poetry book of fully AI generated Irish Poetry.
The telling and retelling of stories is central to Ireland’s oral and literary heritage, as well as to its sense of self. From The Táin to Heaney, we've taken hundreds of Irish poems, folk songs, plays and myths, and fed them into our machine learning model. In training a computer to ‘write’ in this tradition, the results abstract and synthesise our storytelling traditions. By imagining new narratives with new technologies, we can imply our own significance - bringing us to value what is universal and particular.
