Narrative Maps: An Algorithmic Approach to Represent and Extract Information Narratives

  title={Narrative Maps: An Algorithmic Approach to Represent and Extract Information Narratives},
  author={Brian Keith and Tanushree Mitra},
Narratives are fundamental to our perception of the world and are pervasive in all activities that involve the representation of events in time. Yet, modern online information systems do not incorporate narratives in their representation of events occurring over time. This article aims to bridge this gap, combining the theory of narrative representations with the data from modern online systems. We make three key contributions: a theory-driven computational representation of narratives, a novel… 

Characterizing Social Movement Narratives in Online Communities: The 2021 Cuban Protests on Reddit

Social movements are dominated by storytelling, as narratives play a key role in how communities involved in these movements shape their identities. Thus, recognizing the accepted narratives of

Design guidelines for narrative maps in sensemaking tasks

It is found that narrative maps should avoid redundant connections that can be inferred by using the transitive property of event connections, reducing the overall complexity of the map.

Co-Designers Not Troublemakers: Enabling Player-Created Narratives in Persistent Game Worlds

Players in Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPGs) generate long-standing histories with their characters, but cannot express or see traces of their adventures in the game worlds.

Co-Designers Not Troublemakers

Play Traces, a novel analysis method for representing and co-designing with players and their narratives, is introduced and three themes for how traces can affect and support players in shaping new interactive narratives are identified.

Narrative Sensemaking: Strategies for Narrative Maps Construction

This work seeks to understand how analysts construct narrative maps in order to improve narrative map representation and extraction methods and can be used to design narrative map visualizations, extraction algorithms, and visual analytics tools to support the sensemaking process.



Trains of thought: generating information maps

This work proposes a methodology for creating structured summaries of information, which is able to produce maps which help users acquire knowledge efficiently and integrates user interaction into the framework, allowing users to alter the maps to better reflect their interests.

Metro Maps of Information

This work has developed a methodology for creating structured summaries of information, which it calls metro maps, which generates a concise structured set of documents which maximizes coverage of salient pieces of information.

Narrative Versions, Narrative Theories

Contemporary narrative theory is, in many respects, a quite sophisticated area of study: it is international and interdisciplinary in its origins, scope, and pursuits and, in many of its

Information cartography: creating zoomable, large-scale maps of information

Pilot user studies over real-world datasets demonstrate that the proposed methodology for creating structured summaries of information, called zoomable metro maps, helps users comprehend complex stories better than prior work.

An Introduction to the Structural Analysis of Narrative

of all, there is a prodigious variety of genres, each of which branches out into a variety of media, as if all substances could be relied upon to accommodate man's stories. Among the vehicles of

A Graph is Worth a Thousand Words: Telling Event Stories using Timeline Summarization Graphs

This paper proposes StoryGraph, a novel graph timeline summarization structure that is capable of identifying the different themes of a story and discovers that user network communities increase coherence leading to the generation of consistent summary structures.

Summarizing Complex Events: a Cross-Modal Solution of Storylines Extraction and Reconstruction

A novel solution to tackle the challenging problem of storylines extraction and reconstruction by first investigating two requisite properties of an ideal storyline, then a unified algorithm is devised to extract all effective storylines by optimizing these properties at the same time.

Narratives of Space, Time, and Life

The mind constructs narratives from what would otherwise be chaos. Narratives viewed minimally—at least two temporally ordered events—are revealed in the way people talk about space and time.
