The Liquid Narrative research group at the University of Utah and NC State University performs basic and applied research in the area of procedural content generation that develop new computational models of narrative to build stories and tell them automatically. Our work uses techniques from Artificial Intelligence, Computer Game Design and Development, Narrative Theory, Human-Computer Interaction, Cognitive Psychology, Cinematography and other fields to model narrative aspects of human interaction with computer systems. Our investigation is motivated by fundamental ideas from narrative theory and cognitive psychology, and looks to provide computational models of narrative-centered interaction useful across a wide range of applications including:
  • virtual worlds/virtual reality
  • education & training
  • entertainment
  • visualization of event data
  • collaboration and social interaction
