Exploratory Approach to the Computational Modeling of Narrative Ability for Artificial Intelligence

Taisuke Akimoto
Abstract—Narrative ability is an essential element of human intelligence from the perspectives of both psychology and artificial intelligence (AI). It includes many intellectual functions: narrative generation, narrative understanding or interpretation, narrative-mediated communication, and the manipulation of narrativity-based knowledge. The computational modeling of narrative ability is a critical problem in the development of human-like AI agents and user-friendly intelligent information systems. However, implementing this model involves many difficult challenges owing to the structural and phenomenal complexity of narratives. The broader purpose of this study is to develop a computational model of narrative ability from an AI perspective. In this study, we explore the formulation of a conceptual framework of computational narrative ability including a narrativity-based knowledge model and operational modules for this knowledge model.

Index Terms—Artificial intelligence, computational narrative ability, narrative agent, story-form knowledge.
