Action Selection:  Action Selection Actor can only react to sensed changes in environment Unless actor has a goal Actors with goals: Use real-time planning All actors compete for 'resources' Resources: Time, physical objects Unavailability of a resource necessitates re-planning capabilities Action Selection from HTN plans:  Action Selection from HTN plans Solution derived by searching through plan Top-down left-to-right search with backtracking Implemented using real-time variant of AO* Hendler, Tsunato et al. 'Plan-Refinement Strategies and Search-Space Size', Proceedings of the European Conference on Planning, 1997, pp. 414-426. Agent Goals and Planning:  Primary characters usually have a definite goal Create a plan towards achieving it Plan represented as a Hierarchical Task Network (HTN). HTN is an AND/OR Graph Tasks from HTN are usually executed from top-down and left to right Backtracking if actions fail Agent Goals and Planning Hierarchical Task Network (HTN):  Hierarchical Task Network (HTN) Dramatic Purpose:  Dramatic Purpose Dynamic Interaction of characters’ plans (or no plans) leads to humorous situations Illustrated by enactment of sitcom 'Friends™' User can follow story from any perspective (of characters or her own) User can also navigate the virtual set unseen by characters Actors and “Characters” in “Friends™”:  Actors and 'Characters' in 'Friends™' Jennifer Anniston ('Rachel') Courtney Cox ('Monica') Lisa Kudrow ('Phoebe') Matthew Perry ('Chandler') Matt LeBlanc ('Joey') David Schwimmer ('Ross') Prototype restricts itself to: Ross and Rachel (primary actors) Phoebe (secondary actor) Episode Details:  Episode Details Ross’ Goal: To ask Rachel out to dinner Rachel’s Goal: None Ross’ Plan:  Ross’ Plan To ask Rachel out: Ross must find out Rachel’s preferences Consult her PDA Ask Phoebe Gain Rachel’s affection Buy her gifts Isolate Rachel from the others….. Ross’ Preferences among Actions:  Ross’ Preferences among Actions Influenced by personality profile Maybe influenced by 'moods' or emotions Personality profile can be built-in Can be changed Moods (emotions): Not implemented in prototype but subject of future Hierarchical Task Network (HTN):  Hierarchical Task Network (HTN) User Intervention:  User Intervention Act upon physical objects on screen that bear narrative influence Influence actors’ actions by directly 'speaking to them' Consequence for actors: Re-planning Re-planning uses bottom-up search of HTN Re-planning scenarios for actors:  Re-planning scenarios for actors Emergent situations that cannot be ignored Actors use 'situated reasoning' Situated reasoning tries to avoid undesirable future outcomes with respect to actor’s goals Actions of actors in emergent situations impacts future scenario Unavailability of resources User intervention Friends™: An interactive episode:  Friends™: An interactive episode Ross enters Rachel’s bedroom Friends™: An interactive episode:  Friends™: An interactive episode Unseen by Phoebe who’s preparing coffee Friends™: An interactive episode:  Friends™: An interactive episode User intervenes and removes 'narrative object' (PDA) from Rachel’s Room Friends™: An interactive episode:  Friends™: An interactive episode Ross gets to Rachel’s room and discovers PDA missing Friends™: An interactive episode:  Friends™: An interactive episode Ross makes a new decision to ask Phoebe about Rachel’s preferences (Re-planning) Friends™: An interactive episode:  Friends™: An interactive episode Ross interrupts Phoebe to ask her about Rachel Friends™: An interactive episode:  Friends™: An interactive episode Ross interrupts Phoebe to ask her about Rachel Friends™: An interactive episode:  Friends™: An interactive episode Ross asks Rachel out Emotions in Agents:  Emotions in Agents Emotions: Related to Agent Plans (Gratch 2000) Outcome of relation of events to agent’s plans and goals (Ex: Fear, Frustration) Outcome of interaction between events and agents’ plans and goals (Ex: Anger, Jealousy) Back to Emotional Friends™:  Back to Emotional Friends™ Rachel sees Ross and Phoebe conversing animatedly Rachel 'feels' jealous Actors can’t really emote (!!) Alternative: 'Mood' T-shirts Emotions affect Action Selection Rachel in a jealous mood would refuse Ross outright User advising Ross:  User advising Ross Conclusions and Future Directions:  Conclusions and Future Directions Interactive Storytelling is at an early developmental stage Better co-ordination of actors required Emotive aspects of actors need to be worked upon Character-based plot generation cannot really 'surprise' the user Plot-based narration and emergent plot generation can lead to more entertaining packages
