Paper draft: Linear Logic Programming for Narrative Generation

Gwenn Bosser, João Ferreira, and I have just submitted a paper to LPNMR '13!

Linear Logic Programming for Narrative Generation

In this paper, we explore the use of Linear Logic programming for story generation. We use the language Celf to represent narrative knowledge, and its own querying mechanism to generate story instances, through a number of proof terms. Each proof term obtained is used, through a resource-flow analysis, to build a directed graph where nodes are narrative actions and edges represent inferred causality relationships. Such graphs represent narrative plots structured by narrative causality. Building on previous work evidencing the suitability of Linear Logic as a conceptual model of action and change for narratives, we explore the conditions under which these representations can be operationalized through Linear Logic Programming techniques. This approach is a candidate technique for narrative generation which unifies declarative representations and gene…
