Negative Poetry: Machine Algorithm

The King James Version of the Bible

Negative Poetry Machine Algorithm is a custom made software that translates the Bible into its negative using the database of the Oxford English Dictionary. This first version was designed to search for word antonyms in three levels. First level are direct antonyms of the word, if not found the machine searches for word synonyms and for each of those their antonyms. Multiple negative translations are used randomly throughtout the text - leaving the possibility for always a different kind of negative Bible. The code was minimally optimized for better readability. The plan is to continue the research in the direction of AI and Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms and develop a v.2.0 during 2021.
