Proceedings of the First Workshop on Storytelling

, , and

Human storytelling has existed for as far back as we can trace, predating writing. Humans have used stories for entertainment, education, cultural preservation; to convey experiences, history, lessons, morals; and to share the human experience. Part of grounding artificial intelligence work in human experience can involve the generation, understanding, and sharing of stories. This workshop highlights the diverse work being done in storytelling and AI across different fields. Papers at this workshop are multi-disciplinary, including work on neural, pipeline, and linguistic approaches to understanding and creating stories. We are also pleased to host a Visual Storytelling challenge, highlighting different methods for automatically generating stories given a set of images; and an invited talk from Nasrin Mostafazadeh on communicating about events through storytelling.
