StorySense

Extracting the narratives from text

StorySense

The high-level grand challenge we aim to contribute to is narrative understanding. This involves, not only the development of automatic methods suited to extract complex semantic relations between the narrative components and the different narrative levels, but also to enrich their formal representation with links to knowledge-based and ontologies. The ultimate goal is to model a computational representation of a narrative in a form of a narrative ontology.
