Prototyping a Narrative Structure Interface as a Basis for Human-Computer Co-creation of Narratives

Abstract—This paper describes a human interface, called a narrative structure (NS) interface, for the co-creation of narratives between generative computer programs and humans. This study forms part of work-in-progress research on a co-creative narrative generation system. This system produces diverse narratives through continual narrative-generating chain reactions involving various agents, including narrative generation programs and human narrative creators. Generally, computational narrative generation deals with the structural representation of a narrative, rather than the surface expression as with a natural language. The main role of the proposed interface is to connect a human narrative creation to the internal narrative structure level. In particular, this interface provides a visual diagram of a narrative structure and methods of editing the visualized narrative structure. In this paper, we present a prototyping version of the NS interface and discuss the achievements and future research directions thereof.

Index Terms—Artificial intelligence, co-creative narrative generation system, human interface, knowledge creation, narrative as knowledge, narrative structure.
