The main goal of this work is the development of a tool for suggesting related concepts and for the automatic generation of textual scripts, based on a list of provided concepts.
For this purpose, previously used techniques for similar problems should be explored, in the general domain of Artificial Intelligence and, more specifically, Computational Creativity, with a focus on story and poetry generation.
Although the integration effort is out of the scope of this specific work, the resulting tool should have in mind its integration in Glymt (, a web platform and marketplace for filming, editing and selling short videos.
Work will be oriented by Professor Hugo Gonçalo Oliveira, at Instituto Pedro Nunes and University of Coimbra. Throughout the work, a strong interaction will occur with members of Glymter, the company behind the Glymt platform.
We stress that this is a great opportunity to work on a project that lies in the intersection of academic research and industry, with a result that fulfills a real need by
Glymter and will consequently be intregrated in their product.
This should thus be seen by the candidate either as opening the doors of a potential PhD, or, instead, of a potential future career at Glymter.
