AI and haiku

Siri does haiku. Haiku is a very ancient form of Japanese poetry, based on a pattern of seventeen syllables over three lines of five, seven and five syllables.

But Siri can make that quite easy:

Siri can write haiku. It can even write haiku about haiku, as the last example demonstrates.

That last haiku, in fact, is an item of envy: wish I’d thought of that.
