Abstract:

Long-lived goal reasoning systems that reason over their history confront the bounding problem--the impracticality of reasoning over a large, ever-growing experience-base. This is a problem with some explanation systems that use the history of their observations to inform beliefs about the current state of the world. We propose to apply narrative intelligence NI, which includes the ability to structure experience into narrative structures, to resolve the bounding problem by regarding the full history as a meta-narrative containing individual narratives that can be used in reasoning. Reasoning over narratives rather than raw data will reduce the problem space and also provide opportunity for future work implementing higher forms of reasoning using the semantics inherent to narrative structures.
