Good storytelling is essential in today’s world. From TV and film to literature, strong storylines, compelling plots, and characters help us connect with the stories told. We all know how good writing, acting, or producing can suck us into a story – but what if data could be used to help understand exactly why certain stories are successful? Artificial intelligence (AI) has opened up new possibilities for understanding storytelling, providing fascinating insights into the craft of composing interesting narratives. By leveraging AI techniques such as predictive analysis, we can gain an incredible level of insight that helps explain why some stories have more impact than others. In this blog post, we’ll explore how AI is changing our understanding of storytelling by looking at the data it provides.
Although we have only scratched the surface of what AI can do for storytelling, the potential benefits are already clear. By understanding how our brains process stories, we can use AI to create more impactful, emotionally resonant narratives that keep us coming back for more.
