Stories are useful tools with which we can exchange experience learnt in social contexts, ways to communicate futures in strategic planning, and unique building blocks that connect meanings in a movie or a virtual environment. Evolutionary computation (EC) techniques have the potential to overcome existing limitations in automated storytelling, whereby evolution can provide a process of innovation. However, one source of complexity lies in the transformation of a story in a natural language… 

Quantitative Characteristics of Human-Written Short Stories as a Metric for Automated Storytelling

An empirical experiment in which human subjects have invented short plots in a constrained scenario is reported on, suggesting that there are relatively common patterns that can be used as input data for identifying similarity to human-invented stories in automatic storytelling systems.

Generative comics: a character evolution approach for creating fictional comics

A tool for character design and comic strip creation that applies interactive evolution methods to characters in a virtual environment is described that is used to interactively create artificial characters with extreme personality traits inspired by well-known comics characters.

Classcraft como herramienta gamificada para la enseñanza de Integración de procesos con tecnología informática

New technologies continue to change schemes and ways of managing information from industrial processes. With them, changes in the way society today relates, communicates, how it understands the



From Subjective to Objective Metrics for Evolutionary Story Narration Using Event Permutations

A permutation-based linear representation that relies on capturing the events in a story in a genome, and on transforming any sequence represented by this genome into a valid story using a genotype-phenotype mapping is introduced.

Evolving stories: Grammar evolution for automatic plot generation

Under this framework, a regular grammar is developed to model various causal relationships inside a given story world and evolved using evolutionary computation techniques to generate novel story plots, i.e. story-based scenarios.

The Plot Thickens : bringing structure and meaning intoautomated story generation

This thesis describes how to extend the Virtual Storyteller with a Plot Agent that will direct the events to generate more interesting stories.

An expressive GL-2 grammar for representing story-like scenarios

The approach to strategic scenario generation is verified by employing an interactive evolution framework, which shows the proposed scenario representation scheme can facilitate the generation of coherent and novel story-like scenarios.

Evolving Story Narrative Using Surrogate Models of Human Judgement

This paper addresses the gap in the ability of robots to negotiate meanings of the world through storytelling through approximating human evaluation of stories to guide the evolution by automating the story evolutionary process without interacting with humans.

Generating Narrative Action Schemas for Suspense

This work devise an encoding scheme for converting a plan operator into a genetic-algorithm chromosome and vice versa, respecting constraints that are needed for an operator to be well-formed.

Evolving Stories: Tree Adjoining Grammar Guided Genetic Programming for Complex Plot Generation

A tree adjoining grammar (TAG) is developed to capture semantics of a story with long-distance causal dependency, and a computational framework for story plot generation is presented.

Minstrel: a computer model of creativity and storytelling

Telling a story is a difficult task that requires a variety of knowledge and cognitive processes: knowledge about themes, writing techniques, the story world, and presentation; processes such as

Evolving Narrations of Strategic Defence and Security Scenarios for Computational Scenario Planning

This chapter presents a simple representation of a story that allows evolution to operate on it in a simple manner, and demonstrates how evolutionary computation techniques can be used to evolve different narrations of a strategic story.

A Computational Model of Narrative Generation for Suspense

The goal of this research is to develop a system that produces a narrative designed specifically to evoke a targeted degree of suspense, a significant contributor to the level of engagement experienced by users of interactive narrative systems.
