As part of my dissertation research, I am trying to collect knowledge for an AI system. The system requires knowledge that people have about what happens in common story situations. I am collecting knowledge using a brief online survey. If you would not mind participating, please follow the link to the survey provided below:
My research interests include storytelling, narrative support and understanding, artificial intelligence, and human-computer interaction. In particular, I am studying how to computationally model suspense in narrative, as well as how to apply such a model to intelligent story generation. I am currently working with Mark Riedl in the Entertainment Intelligence Lab at Georgia Tech. Recently, I have also been working with the ADAM Lab on the Digital Improv project. We are investigating narrative in improvisational theatre and developing computational agents that can improvise a narrative in equal collaboration with human improvisers.
During the 2007-08 academic year, I worked with Mark Guzdial to upgrade the Jython Environment for Students (JES), an IDE used here at Georgia Tech as well as in other schools. For more information, check out the Media Computation Teachers site.
Since then, I have worked on Cambot, MST, and several Game AI projects. Summaries of these projects can be seen on my Projects page.
