Narratives are ubiquitous in human experience. It is clear
that, to fully understand and explain human intelligence,
beliefs, and behaviors, we will have to understand why
narrative is universal and explain the function it serves.
The aim of this workshop series is to address key, fundamental
questions about narrative, using computational techniques, so
to advance our understanding of cognition, culture, and
Special Focus: Shared Resources
The computational study narrative does not yet have carefully
Much of the success of natural language interaction is caused by the participants’ mutual understanding of the circumstances surrounding the communication. These circumstances range from reminiscing about a shared experience, such as a birthday party, to coordinating fire-fighting efforts amongst a team using joint beliefs about mutual capabilities. This mutual understanding of perceived context is termed “common ground,” and is made up of all of the background and shared information that will lead to the eventual success of the communication.
