An aqueous completion or workover fluid for oil or gas wells having at least two solid components. One component is a hydroxy containing aluminum compound represented by the formula AlO(OH).xH2O. The second component is a fluid loss control agent which can be either a cross-linked polyvinyl alcohol or a cross-linked hydroxyalkyl cellulose reaction product. An acid soluble weighting agent can be added for wells having higher down hole pressures. Examples of the weighting agents include iron…

An authoring framework for interactive narrative with virtual characters
TLDR
This dissertation demon-strates the first generic software framework for the creation of interactive narratives with virtual characters, with a strong focus on visual authoring methods, and presents a model of an authoring framework that shall allow for concrete authoring of applications that rely on autonomous virtual characters.
A tabletop interactive storytelling system: designing for social interaction
TLDR
The Interactive Storyteller is the first AI-based interactive storytelling system that combines an emergent narrative approach with the social aspects of traditional tabletop board games.
Wacky Pirate Hijinks : causing and resolving conflictbetween autonomous agents in a virtual storyworld
The Virtual Storyteller is a story generation system based on emergent narrative. Emergent narrative is a method in story generation in which the characters all have their own goals, desires and
Narrative Generation in the Wild: Methods from NaNoGenMo
TLDR
This paper examines how narrative coherence is attained in the submissions of NaNoGenMo 2018, an online text generation event where participants are challenged to generate a 50,000 word novel.
Placing mined clues on causality at the heart of narrative planning
TLDR
An assisted temporal data interpretation model by narrative generation is proposed in which narratives are structured with the help of a mix of automatically mined and manually defined association rules.
Narrative generation by associative network extraction from real-life temporal data
TLDR
This thesis proposes an assisted temporal data interpretation model by narrative generation in which narratives are structured with the help of a mix of automatically mined and manually defined association rules.
Graphical narrative interfaces: Representing spatiotemporal information for a highly autonomous human-robot team
  • Hiroaki Nakano, M. Goodrich
  • Computer Science
    2015 24th IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication (RO-MAN)
  • 2015
TLDR
This paper uses literature and preliminary GNI designs to identify a set of design requirements and develops a conceptual GNI implementation that satisfies these requirements, and hypothesizes that the GNI allows users to search and analyze spatiotemporal information more easily and quickly than a typical GUI.
Causal networks as the backbone for temporal data-to-text
TLDR
A bottom-up document planning method for building the rhetorical structure of coherent narratives from a causal network that is robust to partial causal networks and does not require the generated rhetorical structure to be a tree.
Assembling Narratives with Associative Threads
A model is proposed showing how automatically extracted and manually written association rules can be used to build the structure of a narrative from real-life temporal data. The generated text’s
The Virtual Storyteller : story generation by simulation
TLDR
The motivation and approach of the Virtual Storyteller are described, and an overview of the computational processes involved in the story generation process are given.

Narration for virtual storytelling
TLDR
This document describes the design and implementation of a new Narrator agent which uses more sophisticated natural language generation techniques.
The automatic generation of narratives
TLDR
The Narrator is presented, a Natural Language Generation component used in a digital storytelling system that generates a narrative in Dutch by carrying out tasks such as constructing a Document Plan, performing aggregation and ellipsis and the generation of appropriate referring expressions.
Narrative prose generation
A Fabula Model for Emergent Narrative
TLDR
This paper discusses the advantages of explicitly representing theEmergent event sequence in order to be able to exert influence on it and generate stories that ‘retell' the emergent narrative.
Pronominalization revisited
TLDR
A new focus definition has been evaluated with respect to two corpora: museum exhibit labels, and newspaper articles and it provides an operationalizable basis for pronoun production, and has been implemented as the reusable module gnome-np.
Cross-Domain Analogy in Automated Text Generation
TLDR
Research aimed at improving the stylistic quality of the texts generated by a natural language generation system with the use of analogy is presented, and several issues arising from the observed behaviour are discussed.
Performing aggregation and ellipsis using discourse structures
TLDR
It is contended that Dependency Trees connected by rhetorical relations are excellent input for a generation system that has to generate ellipsis, and a taxonomy of the most common Dutch cue words is proposed, grouped according to the kind of discourse relations they signal.
Structural Parallelism and Discourse Coherence: A Test of Centering Theory
Abstract Three experiments investigate the effects of utterance structure and anaphoric reference on discourse comprehension. These factors are examined in the context of utterance pairs with
An Algorithm for Pronominal Anaphora Resolution
TLDR
The algorithm applies to the syntactic representations generated by McCord's Slot Grammar parser and relies on salience measures derived from syntactic structure and a simple dynamic model of attentional state and to models of anaphora resolution that invoke a variety of informational factors in ranking antecedent candidates.
Emotional Characters for Automatic Plot Creation
TLDR
This paper describes how plots emerge from the actions of semi-autonomous character agents, focusing on the influence of the characters’ emotions on plot development.
