  • Bard was originally written as a poetry composition system. It is designed to assist the user in composing a wide variety of poems - as communicative devices. The system will make the composition of very complex poems incorporating advanced systems of metre much easier, and while an autist has trouble communicating, learned poetry will put their communication on an equal footing with Neurotypicals. I.e. Bard will overcome the lack of credibility. We will finally be able to tell the truth, and tell it well.

    Functionality includes:
    • Statistical models over poem copora
    • Checks and suggestions for various systems of bardic composition.
    • Capabilities for automatically generating poems that satsify various requirements.
