About the Narrative Intelligence Lab
The Narrative Intelligence Lab in the Computer Science Department at the University of Kentucky is a highly interdisciplinary research group that investigates how computers can use narrative to interact more naturally with people. We combine research in Artificial Intelligence, Narrative Theory, and Cognitive Science to create computational models of narrative. These models allow machines to understand, generate, adapt, and tell stories.
Our work has numerous applications in education, training, therapy, and entertainment. We place a high value on the rigorous empirical evaluation of our work, which often involves human subjects interacting with virtual worlds. We have a close relationship with computer games and game-like technologies which allow us to embody the algorithms that create interactive stories.
