            Subject: Cybernetic Poet: Ray Kurzweil


    I have found during my cyberexplorations via HyperText Kitchen..that Ray
    Kurzweil has created an interactive, intelligent software suite designed
    to act as a Poet's assistant. Ray Kurzweil's "Cybernetic Poet" is now
    available as Free download from Kurzweil's Cyberart Technologies Inc..at
    <http://www.kurzweilcyberart.com> [please visit this site, WORTH to visit]

    According to Kurzweil, "With a little cyberhelp anyone can write creative
    adaptations based on Elizabeth Barrett Browning's half-rhymes, William
    Butler Yeat's Alliterations; just to name a few," said Kurzweil..--Just
    amazing and wonderful..He has also written a Poem, on "The Age of
    Intelligent Machines: A (kind of) Turing Test"

    I hope, he has also discussed his Cybernetic Poetic philosophy in his
    latest book.

    Sincerely yours
    Arun Tripathi
