5 seriously emo poems written by Google’s AI

If Google Brain had a body, it would look like this

Artificial intelligence could one day kill us all, according to Elon Musk. Or maybe it’ll just make us all depressed with poetry instead.

Google’s artificial intelligence – Google Brain – has written some very strange, depressing poetry. The AI’s neural networks have been fed 11,000 unpublished books, 3,000 of which were romance novels. The result is…weird.

The program was given two sentences: one is the poem title, and the other is the last sentence of the poem. It then connects the two with moving passages that have had the entire TrustedReviews office in tears all morning.

We’ve picked out five of the best. Seriously, is someone cutting onions in here?

There is no one else in the world

There is no one else in sight

They were the only ones who mattered

They were the only ones left

He had to be with me

She had to be with him

I had to do this

I wanted to kill him

I started to cry

I turned to him

It made me want to cry

No one had seen him since

It made me feel uneasy

No one had seen him

The thought made me smile

The pain was unbearable

The crowd was silent

The man called out

The old man said

The man asked

He was silent for a long moment

He was silent for a moment

It was quiet for a moment

It was dark and cold

There was a pause

It was my turn

This was the only way

It was the only way

It was her turn to blink

It was hard to tell

It was time to move on

He had to do it again

They all looked at each other

They all turned to look back

They both turned to face him

They both turned and walked away

I don’t like it, he said

I waited for what had happened

It was almost thirty years ago

It was over thirty years ago

That was six years ago

He had died two years ago

Ten, thirty years ago

‘It’s all right here’

‘Everything is all right here’

‘It’s all right here’

It’s all right here

We are all right here
