The invention of fictional ideas (ideation) is often a central process in producing artefacts such as poems, music and paintings in a creative way. Automated fictional ideation should, therefore , be of much interest in the study of Computational Creativity, but only a few approaches have been explored. We describe here the preliminary results of a new(More)
The invention of fictional ideas (ideation) is often a central process in the creative production of artefacts such as poems , music and paintings, but has barely been studied in the Computational Creativity community. We present here three baseline approaches for automated fictional ideation, using methods which invert and alter facts from the ConceptNet(More)
The invention of fictional ideas is often a central process in the creative production of artefacts such as poems , music, paintings and games. Currently, fictional ideation is being studied by the Computational Creativity community within the WHIM European project. The aim of WHIM is to develop the What-If Machine, a software system capable of inventing,(More)
The invention of fictional ideas (ideation) is often a central process in the creative production of artefacts such as poems, music and paintings, but has barely been studied in the computational creativity community. We present here a general approach to automated fictional ideation that works by manipulating facts specified in knowledge bases. More(More)
Within the WHIM project, we study fictional ideation: processes for automatically inventing, assessing and presenting fictional ideas. Here we examine the foundational notion of the plausibility of fictional ideas, by performing an empirical study to surface the factors that affect judgements of plau-sibility. Our long term aim is to formalise a(More)
