About Poem Select

Vandal Poem of the Day (VPOD) is a public poetry project, which brings relevant contemporary poetry to the University of Idaho and the broader Idaho community. A new poem is published on the website every day during the academic year.

This site uses VPOD poetry as raw data for exploration of Natural Language Processing. The text of each poem was processed using Watson Natural Language Understanding API providing a variety of metrics to play with. Links to all the experiments is available on the list page.
