Additional Information:

Presents the first declarative language for representing interactive narratives with pre-recorded multi-media. Lays down formal foundations for a new approach to interactive storytelling and provides for the development of further AI techniques for digital narrativity. The language—constructed through an iterative process of knowledge elicitation—has an accompanying inference engine implemented in Prolog and validated through use in the EU-funded NM2 project. The language is reusable outside the domain of storytelling and it is an essential element in the successful collaborative FP7 follow-up proposal (an 18.2 million euro project concerning machine-mediated human-to-human interaction) to start in early 2008.
