Planning-based techniques are powerful tools for automated narrative generation, however, as the planning domain grows in the number of possible actions traditional planning techniques suffer from a combinatorial explosion. In this work, we apply Monte Carlo Tree Search to goal-driven narrative generation. We demonstrate our approach to have an order of(More)

We present an object-centric formulation for parallel rigid body simulation that supports variable length integration time steps through rollbacks. We combine our object-centric simulation framework with a novel spatiotemporal data structure to reduce global synchronization and achieve interactive, real-time simulations which scale across many CPU cores.(More)
