Poem postcards are found within the Google Arts & Culture app and website, where you can choose from several types of poems to generate, including a sonnet, limerick, ode, elegy, haiku, and others. The AI will base the content of the poem on the subject you type in the generator, such as “ocean” or “spring”, as well as the painting you want on the postcard cover. Some of the works you can use include The Great Wave off Kanagawa, The Scream, The starry Nightand many more.
The AI will then combine all your choices into a poem that you can share with friends like the poem I created about The Scream and fried dough (pictured above). Google says it generates the poems using its PaLM 2 large language model, which it released earlier this year.
In addition to this poem generator, the app now allows you to scroll through a personalized feed of cultural highlights and allows you to further refine your searches for cultural topics. Google also added a “culture flyer” that lets you browse through work-related content you’re viewing. For now, you can only access the redesigned Arts & Culture app on Android, with an iOS release “coming soon.”
