In this talk we describe the research behind, which is a new NLG startup.’s technology is derived from an earlier work where we built a metaphor generation system.

The original research goal was the generation of novel and apt metaphors for a given context. This project required that we compile datasets, annotate for metaphors, build models, and perform human evaluation. We discuss the challenges associated with each of these stages and describe a novel heterogeneous encoder-decoder architecture that generates many realisations for the same context.’s system uses a similar architecture to generate many descriptions for a single garment. The different descriptions emphasise emotional tones, which allows for A/B testing of copy variants. Finally, we discuss some of the lessons learnt commercialising a research project.
