David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science

We describe three versions of TwitSong, a system that generates poetry based on the news. TwitSong is designed to make aesthetic decisions about potential lines of poetry and, in the third version, to edit its own work. We describe how the system was developed, how it performs in user studies, and why this type of computer-generated poetry still has a long way to go.

The wavelet transform has seen success when incorporated into neural network architectures, such as in wavelet scattering networks. More recently, it has been shown that the dual-tree complex wavelet transform can provide better representations than the standard transform.

The visual complexity of a graph drawing is defined as the number of geometric objects needed to represent all its edges. In particular, one object may represent multiple edges, e.g., one needs only one line segment to draw two collinear incident edges.

Daniel M. Berry
David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science

Dan Berry weaves the twin peaks of (1) his life in computing, programming, programming languages, software engineering, electronic publishing, and requirements engineering with (2) the almost concurrent development of programming languages, software engineering, and requirements engineering.
