Aligning to Social Norms and Values in Interactive Narratives

no code implementations NAACL 2022 Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Liwei Jiang, Maarten Sap, Hannaneh Hajishirzi, Yejin Choi

We focus on creating agents that act in alignment with socially beneficial norms and values in interactive narratives or text-based games -- environments wherein an agent perceives and interacts with a world through natural language.

Inherently Explainable Reinforcement Learning in Natural Language

no code implementations16 Dec 2021 Xiangyu Peng, Mark O. Riedl, Prithviraj Ammanabrolu

We focus on the task of creating a reinforcement learning agent that is inherently explainable -- with the ability to produce immediate local explanations by thinking out loud while performing a task and analyzing entire trajectories post-hoc to produce causal explanations.

Situated Dialogue Learning through Procedural Environment Generation

no code implementations ACL 2022 Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Renee Jia, Mark O. Riedl

We teach goal-driven agents to interactively act and speak in situated environments by training on generated curriculums.

Modeling Worlds in Text

1 code implementation AKBC Workshop CSKB 2021 Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Mark O. Riedl

Telling Stories through Multi-User Dialogue by Modeling Character Relations

no code implementations SIGDIAL (ACL) 2021 Wai Man Si, Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Mark O. Riedl

This paper explores character-driven story continuation, in which the story emerges through characters' first- and second-person narration as well as dialogue -- requiring models to select language that is consistent with a character's persona and their relationships with other characters while following and advancing the story.

Story Continuation

Situated Language Learning via Interactive Narratives

no code implementations18 Mar 2021 Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Mark O. Riedl

This paper provides a roadmap that explores the question of how to imbue learning agents with the ability to understand and generate contextually relevant natural language in service of achieving a goal.

Playing Text-Based Games with Common Sense

no code implementations4 Dec 2020 Sahith Dambekodi, Spencer Frazier, Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Mark O. Riedl

We test our technique in the 9to05 game, which is an extreme version of a text based game that requires numerous interactions with common, everyday objects in common, everyday scenarios.

Automated Storytelling via Causal, Commonsense Plot Ordering

1 code implementation2 Sep 2020 Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Wesley Cheung, William Broniec, Mark O. Riedl

In this work, we introduce the concept of soft causal relations as causal relations inferred from commonsense reasoning.

How to Avoid Being Eaten by a Grue: Structured Exploration Strategies for Textual Worlds

1 code implementation12 Jun 2020 Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Ethan Tien, Matthew Hausknecht, Mark O. Riedl

Text-based games are long puzzles or quests, characterized by a sequence of sparse and potentially deceptive rewards.

How To Avoid Being Eaten By a Grue: Exploration Strategies for Text-Adventure Agents

1 code implementation19 Feb 2020 Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Ethan Tien, Zhaochen Luo, Mark O. Riedl

We compare our exploration strategies against strong baselines on the classic text-adventure game, Zork1, where prior agent have been unable to get past a bottleneck where the agent is eaten by a Grue.

Toward Automated Quest Generation in Text-Adventure Games

no code implementations CCNLG (ACL) 2019 Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, William Broniec, Alex Mueller, Jeremy Paul, Mark O. Riedl

Text-adventure games are typically structured as puzzles or quests wherein the player must execute certain actions in a certain order to succeed.

Interactive Fiction Games: A Colossal Adventure

2 code implementations11 Sep 2019 Matthew Hausknecht, Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Marc-Alexandre Côté, Xingdi Yuan

A hallmark of human intelligence is the ability to understand and communicate with language.

Story Realization: Expanding Plot Events into Sentences

1 code implementation8 Sep 2019 Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Ethan Tien, Wesley Cheung, Zhaochen Luo, William Ma, Lara J. Martin, Mark O. Riedl

Neural network based approaches to automated story plot generation attempt to learn how to generate novel plots from a corpus of natural language plot summaries.

Transfer in Deep Reinforcement Learning using Knowledge Graphs

no code implementations WS 2019 Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Mark O. Riedl

Text adventure games, in which players must make sense of the world through text descriptions and declare actions through text descriptions, provide a stepping stone toward grounding action in language.

Guided Neural Language Generation for Automated Storytelling

no code implementations WS 2019 Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Ethan Tien, Wesley Cheung, Zhaochen Luo, William Ma, Lara Martin, Mark Riedl

Prior work has shown that a semantic abstraction of sentences called events improves neural plot generation and and allows one to decompose the problem into: (1) the generation of a sequence of events (event-to-event) and (2) the transformation of these events into natural language sentences (event-to-sentence).

Event Representations for Automated Story Generation with Deep Neural Nets

1 code implementation5 Jun 2017 Lara J. Martin, Prithviraj Ammanabrolu, Xinyu Wang, William Hancock, Shruti Singh, Brent Harrison, Mark O. Riedl

We then present a technique for automated story generation whereby we decompose the problem into the generation of successive events (event2event) and the generation of natural language sentences from events (event2sentence).
