AAAI'13: Story Generation with Crowdsourced Plot Graphs

Story Generation with Crowdsourced Plot Graphs, to appear at the AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence, July 2013.

We present a novel class of story generation system that can generate stories in an unknown domain by (a) automatically learning a domain model via crowdsourcing and (b) sampling stories from the space defined by the domain model. A large-scale evaluation shows that stories generated by our system for a previously unknown topic are comparable in quality to simple stories authored by untrained humans.
