Kurzweil Cyber Art

April 11, 2000 -- From a reader from New Orleans, LA who is affiliated with the site

Here’s another one for National Poetry Month: Kurzweil Cyber Art. The site has a free download for Windows that contains a random poetry generator screensaver. You can also get Ray Kurzweil’s Cybernetic Poet (RKCP), which can learn the styles of poets like Keats, Blake, Dickinson & Shakespeare, among others, and suggest turns of phrase in the style of those poets! It’s a great and fun way to learn about poetry!
