What would it be like to write collaboratively with an AI? Writing is influenced by our experiences with people, culture, and our environments. I asked myself the question, how can AI inspire writers? As a singer/songwriter myself, my goal for this project was to provide a brainstorming AI tool for writers, songwriters, and poets.
To better understand my user or user’s intent, I designed a writing exercise in which I invited users to write a song/poem with me. I simulated the AI in that I was the algorithm. Based on the topic a participant chose, I would pick a dataset and construct responses based on the dataset's language, structure, and style.
Dataset examples: Arcadia - Tom Stoppard (play) Tumblr posts based on specific hashtag
