Automated Poetry

Sergey Teterin, the man who gave the world Cyber-Pushkin, an AI creating Russian poetry, started a blog featuring automated translations of his Russian blog-entries.

With current (freely available) technology this results in unintentional poetry sometimes ... "Then, the best pictures were bought by richmen, and the portrait of the artist was printed in the newspaper near to Elvis Presley. If in the newspaper wrote, that somewhere on the ground people do not want to build MacDonalds and to print portrait of Elvis, the main general sent the planes, they flied and dumped(reset) the big bombs..."
On the other hand it does give an insight into what Sergey is blogging about in Russian - something I have been wondering for a while!
