Story Space

Analogy Space, a previous project under the Digital Intuition group, developed a technique of plotting concepts in a many-dimensional semantic space in order to identify clusters of concepts that are similar to each other. Story Space will apply this technique to human narrative in order to provide a measure of similarity between different stories. It has had preliminary success using datasets that are easily broken up into discrete events, such as "how-to" articles from the Internet. The next steps involve using automatic event taggers to determine the progression of a story.
