Hard not to be interested in the boundaries between humans and artificial intelligence,

Our machines are disturbingly lively

(Haraway, 2007)

I found a website which challenges you to read a poem and vote on whether it was written by a bot or a human. I voted correctly the first time, but then incorrectly about four times. Some of the poems were translated from other languages so at times it was difficult to decide. My second correct vote for Written by a human felt unmistakable though. A way-in to investigating computer-generated poetry and exploring the boundaries between humans and robots.

Humans and human-coded robots?
