Al stories: interactive narratives for hospitalised children.

AI Stories is a language technological project based around the paediatrics wards of two Flemish hospitals. The project intends to push forward state of the art natural language generation, in order to implement a system capable of autonomously telling stories, and revealing invaluable psychological data to healthcare staff. In turn, the same technology could be used by companies and sectors outside of healthcare. Such advances will facilitate educational and caring Artificial Intelligence software, and allow companies in those sectors to build and analyse usable systems. The paediatrics ward is an acute example of a socially challenging linguistic context for children, that also exists more generally. By researching there, and developing an intelligent system capable of prolonged dialogue, which incorporates the feedback of healthcare staff, a robust solution across care industries is achievable.
