Understanding Narrative is Like Observing Agents

Guido Boella, Rossana Damiano, and Leonardo Lesmo

In this paper, we suggest that AI techniques, especially the ones developed in the field of agent modeling and intelligent interfaces, can be exploited both to build systems for narrative understanding and to allow agents to describe their own behavior in a narrative style. In particular, we will show how it is possible to exploit a model of dialog interpretation for building a system that understands stories and produces a representation of the characters’ plans and intentions.
