Synthetic Audience reads and provides guidance on a narrative plot. The author crafts the story by filling out event templates that include narrative information such as people, places, or objectives. As the author builds the story, the Synthetic Audience analyses the plot and provides feedback.
‘The model builder “reads” the story as it is authored by the human creator. After each read event, it builds or revises its mental model by hypothesizing the goals of the story characters using a number of strategies, and reconstructs the story using a narrative generation planner.’
