A story summarizer benefits greatly from a reader model because a reader model enables the story summarizer to focus on delivering useful knowledge in minimal time with minimal eort. Such a

Web-STAR: A Visual Web-based IDE for a Story Comprehension System
TLDR
The Web-STAR platform is presented, an online platform for story understanding built on top of the STAR reasoning engine for STory comprehension through ARgumentation that delivers a number of “social” features, including a community repository for public story sharing with a built-in commenting system.
Web-STAR: Towards a Visual Web-Based IDE for a Story Comprehension System
In this work, we present Web-STAR, an online platform for story understanding built on top of the STAR (STory comprehension through ARgumentation) reasoning engine. This platform includes a web-based
Story-enabled hypothetical reasoning
TLDR
This work develops a story-enabled hypothetical reasoning system that models several high-level human abilities, including judging actions in terms of moral alternatives, contextualizing stories by considering what could have otherwise happened, and deliberating about personality to decide what characters will do next.
Symbolic Knowledge Structures and Intuitive Knowledge Structures
This paper proposes that two distinct types of structures are present in the brain: Symbolic Knowledge Structures (SKSs) , used for formal symbolic reasoning, and Intuitive Knowledge Structures

Plot Units and Narrative Summarization
TLDR
A technique of memory representation based on plot units appears to provide a rich foundation for a high level analysis of the story that highlights its central concepts.
Story retrieval and comparison using concept patterns
TLDR
This research presents a novel approach to traditional story retrieval that uses keywords to determine similarity between stories that shed light on a new situation.
Syntactic and Semantic Decomposition Strategies for Question Answering from Multiple Resources *
This paper describes three language-motivated techniques for question answering from multiple resources. The techniques are situated within a QA architecture that combines language processing,
Learning narrative structure from annotated folktales
TLDR
Analogical Story-Merging (ASM), a new machine learning algorithm that can extract culturally-relevant plot patterns from sets of folktales, is described and it is demonstrated that ASM can learn a substantive portion of Vladimir Propp's influential theory of the structure of folktale plots.
The Strong Story Hypothesis and the Directed Perception Hypothesis

    AAAI Fall Symposium: Advances in Cognitive Systems

TLDR
The Strong Story Hypothesis, which holds that story telling and understanding have a central role in human intelligence, is introduced and the representations and methods embodied in the Genesis system are described, a story-understanding system that analyzes stories ranging.
Scripts, plans, goals and understanding: an inquiry into human knowledge structures
For both people and machines, each in their own way, there is a serious problem in common of making sense out of what they hear, see, or are told about the world. The conceptual apparatus necessary
The Right Way
Intermediate Features and Informational-level Constraint on Analogical Retrieval
TLDR
The natural conjecture that experts are better than novices at retrieving useful analogical precedents within their domain of expertise is taken, with the caveat that this supposed difference may be upended by future sur- prising experimental results.
Show and tell: A neural image caption generator
TLDR
This paper presents a generative model based on a deep recurrent architecture that combines recent advances in computer vision and machine translation and that can be used to generate natural sentences describing an image.
