StoryNet is a large database of story-scripts and inference tools that can be used for case-based common-sense reasoning. Since people are by nature experts at using story structures to organize and manage the complexity of life, we have turned to the general public to gather over a million story-scripts using various Web-based, story-building interfaces. As our acquisition systems are released and tested, we anticipate that our representations will be revised and enhanced as we learn from the human storytelling impulse and the success and limitations of the inference mechanisms we develop. StoryNet is one of a suite of common-sense tools at the Media Lab, including ConceptNet and LifeNet.
