Robots that tell stories
Storytelling is the art of narrating stories. Computer generated stories are common in virtual world. However, the research in this area relies to a large extent to scripted stories or stories with fixed themes. A robot that interacts with human should not use a fixed storyboard or fixed themes. The interaction requires from the robot to adapt in a changing environment. This project aims at equipping a robot with the ability of telling stories on the fly. These stories will be auto-generated by the Robot based on the situations it will encounter in the environment.
Description of Work:
- Developing an understanding of basic linguistics and the principles of natural language processing
- Developing an understanding of Chomsky Hierarchy and formal grammar
- Develop methodologies for representing and evolving stories
- Testing the methodology and scoring it against human-generated stories.
