The New Scientist has an article about a storytelling program, written by CS professor Ladislau Bölöni, http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg21628945.700-storytelling-software-learns-how-to-tell-a-good-tale.html The program has the ability to digest stories (such as “Little Red Riding-Hood”) and tell a story about what will happen by predicting events and associating them with memories. The article says that the program: “demonstrates a first step towards computers that can invent stories. It also signals a new approach to designing a more human-like artificial intelligence.” A paper with more details is available at http://arxiv.org/abs/1211.5643.
