Systems that can describe their own behavior exhibit intelligence of a higher order. Storytelling-like capabilities empower systems to explain their decisions, describe their activities, align their present situation against precedent, consider hypothetical alternatives, diagnose their mistakes, learn from stories, and generalize their experiences. A number of research efforts have independently explored aspects of such machine-generated descriptions, but interaction between specialized subareas of AI remains sparse in the literature. These specialized areas include:
- Explainable AI (XAI), focusing on augmenting machine learning frameworks with compositional, humanly-interpretable representations.
- Case-based reasoning, focusing on deploying previous stories to understand new phenomena.
- Hypothetical reasoning, focusing on understanding which is augmented by speculation about variations in past, present, and future circumstances.
- Narrative intelligence, focusing on modeling the human aspects of producing and interpreting narratives and explanations.
- Cognitive architectures, focusing on the design of large-scale symbolic systems.
- Natural language generation and understanding, focusing on modeling human facility with language, including description, conversation, persuasion, explanation, and teaching.
- Planning, focusing on generating problem-solving action sequences, often involving skillful incorporation of contingency, constraints, other agents, and incomplete information.
SubmittingOur submission site is now open:
- Paper submissions, up to 6 pages.
- Short papers, between 2-4 pages.
- Discussant applications. At our symposium, paper talks will be punctuated by moderated discussions. If you are interested in moderating or participating in such a discussion, please submit information relevant to your background in the form of a CV and a 1-2 paragraph statement of your current research interests and any relevant experience in such discussion panels.
- Symposium schedule is here.
- Paper submissions are now closed.
- Story-enabled Intelligence will take place at the 2019 AAAI Spring Symposia on March 25-27, 2019 at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.
