I dreamt* one night that the peaches would come and kill me. I stood in my kitchen, peaches all around me, peaches flying at my head. They clawed at me with their sticky fingers, and drooled all over me. I screamed for help, and my husband came running in, unarmed, not knowing what was going on. I chased him down, and grabbed him by the throat, squeezing. I told him the peaches were coming, and they were going to eat me, and it would all be his fault. I grabbed his hand, and squeezed harder, telling him this time the peaches would really hurt him.”

This was REALLY FUNNY and really clever. I am amazed by the way this AI algorithm maintains meaning and grammatical structure. This story makes sense, it wasn’t like the short film we watched in class where the dialogue was nonsensical! I think out of all the tools I have played with so far, this is my favorite one by far!

“Shakira released Pies Descalzos in 2005 with Daddy Yankee, Wisin, Nicky Jam and Jowell & Randy, a Spanish-language album that was a massive success around the world. The album stayed on the Billboard 200 chart for 120 weeks and was certified 16 times platinum by the RIAA, becoming the best-selling Latin pop album of all time. In 2013, Shakira released El Dorado, which went on to become the highest selling Latin album of all time. On June 3, 2016, Shakira released her ninth studio album El Dorado, with different themes”
In this one I wanted to see how it would deal with legit factual information. As many of you may know, I really like this one album by Shakira. It didn’t do very well this time 🙁

MANY YEARS LATER as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice. At that time Macondo was a village of twenty adobe houses, built on the bank of a river of clear water that ran along a bed of polished stones, which were white and enormous, like prehistoric eggs. His father bought some bags of ice for their house from a peddler, on a side street with a red-roofed church at the end of it. Aureliano stood in front of the ice chests, looking at his father, who was smiling and pointing to the church. The peddler’s dog was snarling at the collar of the boy’s shirt; Aureliano was afraid of it. His father said, “Eat. There is nothing you can lose.” He took out a handful of change and said, “You must buy something.” The peddler was going to ask him if he had”

In this one I decided to input actual textual information from a famous book, One Hundred Years of Solitude. This one was rather interesting because it actually retained some of the context of the original story! Although this isn’t how the story goes.

I wish I was a puddle of water, so I don’t have to go to my coding interview. I wish I was back home with my mom so I could eat fried plantains and noodle rice. I wish my parents would understand and support me. I wish I were in class. I was packing my stuff and preparing myself to go to work when the tears came out. “I wish I was back home with my mom so I could eat fried plantains and noodle rice,” I mumbled as I held back the tears. “That’s OK, and guess what? You’ll go back home soon,” a voice told me. I suddenly felt better, and I finished the interview on time.”

LOL. Thank you  algorithm, for giving me advice on reframing the situation.

*this is grammatically correct.
