Abstract:

Narrative Intelligence (NI) - the confluence of narrative, Artificial
Intelligence, and media studies - studies, models, and supports the
human use of narrative to understand the world. This volume brings
together established work and founding documents in Narrative
Intelligence to form a common reference point for NI researchers,
providing perspectives from computational linguistics, agent research,
psychology, ethology, art, and media theory. It describes artificial
agents with narratively structured behavior, agents that take part in
stories and tours, systems that automatically generate stories,
dramas, and documentaries, and systems that support people telling
their own stories. It looks at how people use stories, the features of
narrative that play a role in how people understand the world, and how
human narrative ability may have evolved. It addresses meta-issues in
NI: the history of the field, the stories AI researchers tell about
their research, and the effects those stories have on the things
they discover. (Series B)
