The field of artificial intelligence has long envisioned using computers to automatically write stories. The objective of this endeavor is not necessarily to replace human story authors, but instead support them through collaboration. In this talk, I’ll present my work on a particular application that addresses this goal by automatically generating suggestions to authors for new sentences in a story they are writing. I’ll discuss my current findings on authors’ interactions with this application and show how these findings motivate future opportunities in relevant interdisciplinary research across computer science, linguistics, and psychology.
