Computation Models of Interactive Narrative

CSC582: Computational Models of Interactive Narrative

In this course we examine the use of intelligent systems to control interaction within virtual worlds, focusing on the computational  modeling of narrative as a primary organizing principle for that interaction. Class format is a combination of seminar and lecture, drawing from texts at the intersections of artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, multi-agent systems, computational linguistics, user interface design, narrative and film theory and sociology.

The course is taught by Dr. R. Michael Young.
