A Story to Go, Please

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 6432)

Abstract

In this paper we present an approach for an association-based story environment, in which a priori unrelated experiences represented in images, are stitched together to guide users through interesting city spaces. We describe the associative stories generated by this system, and outline how the notion of ’hypespot’ facilitates linking the real world with the structure of the story. We outline the overall architecture of the system and provide a generated story example.
