  • System Name: Artequakt
  • Short Description: Automatic generation of narrative biographies of artists
  • System Builders: Kim, Alani, Hall, Lewis, Millard, Shadbolt, Weal[1]
  • Development Period: 2002–ongoing

The Artequakt project is working towards automatically generating narrative biographies of artists from knowledge that has been extracted from the Web and maintained in a knowledge base. An overview of the system architecture is presented here and the three key components of that architecture are explained in detail, namely knowledge extraction, information management and biography construction. It is our belief that by building a story-schema layer on top of an ontology we can create dynamic stories within a certain domain.
