Generating Creative Language

Bachelor Thesis, Master Thesis

We would like to be able to explore the area of creative argument generation: can we generate creative, humorous, and insightful arguments automatically? Despite recent advances in natural language processing, natural communication with artificial intelligence remains difficult. This is in part because AI systems generally struggle with using and understanding creative language. Creative language (including metaphors, similes, humor and more) is particularly challenging for natural language generation (NLG), the research area that works to automatically generate natural, fluent text. In order to develop friendly, and convincing AI, we need to be able to incorporate creative language into our models of language generation.
