Topic: Interactive Storytelling via Intelligent Agents

Description: This research investigates various designs and implementations of programs that enable interactive, artifically intelligent storytelling, including ways of creating believable characters and consistent plotlines.

Motivation: Stories have been told throughout history, but for a computer, storytelling is a very complex procedure as it requires both solid, continuous plots and multiple believable characters. This research requires both natural language processing and artificial intelligence, and, because of the nature of storytelling, it is a very practical application of both areas of research.
