Adaptive, intelligent, interactive narrative research.
Intelligent interactive narratives in virtual reality provide new opportunities for training simulations.
The Best Laid Plans is an interactive virtual environment in which the narrative is generated automatically as you play.
Reading Rocket is a data-driven game-based tool for assessing middle school reading level.
The Laboratory for Analytic Sciences has funded Dr. Ware's research on intelligent multi-agent planning and plan recognition.
Congratulations to E.T. Garcia, who will be presenting his research on intelligent VR training at the 2019 FLAIRS conference.
Congratulations to Rachel Farrell and Dharmesh Desai, who received M.S. degrees at graduation 2017.
Dr. Ware was honored by UNO with the Early Career Creativity, Research, and Scholarship award for 2019.

About the Narrative Intelligence Lab

The Narrative Intelligence Lab in the Computer Science Department at the University of New Orleans is a highly interdisciplinary research group that investigates how computers can use narrative to interact more naturally with people. We combine research in Artificial Intelligence, Narrative Theory, and Cognitive Science to create computational models of narrative. These models allow machines to understand, generate, adapt, and tell stories.

Our work has numerous applications in education, training, therapy, and entertainment. We place a high value on the rigorous empirical evaluation of our work, which often involves human subjects interacting with virtual worlds. We have a close relationship with computer games and game-like technologies which allow us to embody the algorithms that create interactive stories.

Questions about the Narrative Intelligence Lab and its work should be addressed to:
