Artificial Intelligence and Literary Creativity: Inside the Mind of Brutus, A Storytelling Machine
Lawrence Erlbaum | 1999 | ISBN: 080581986X | Pages: 264 | PDF | 1.7 MB

Is human creativity a wall that AI can never scale? Many people are happy to admit that experts in many domains can be matched by either knowledge-based or sub-symbolic systems, but even some AI researchers harbor the hope that when it comes to feats of sheer brilliance, mind over machine is an unalterable fact. In this book, the authors push AI toward a time when machines can autonomously write not just humdrum stories of the sort seen for years in AI, but first-rate fiction thought to be the province of human genius. It reports on five years of effort devoted to building a story generator–the BRUTUS.1 system.
