We are looking for folks who love interactive fiction and maybe an adventure game here and there to help out with an AI-assisted interactive fiction project. In a nutshell, one can look at any story as a set of moments in time. Each moment may contain many events. One can train AI instead of crunching numbers to simulate different paths through this sea of possible events. The AI does not do any writing. The writing is all yours. What AI does is serve the events that you write, simulating many possible stories at once. Now of course some will not make sense like a dead character pops back up. The author then trains the AI by pruning away the paths that don’t make sense. Once the work is shared with an audience, the audience becomes co-authors in a sense that they can indicate their reaction to what just happened as a result of their actions. So the AI continues to learn. No two reads are ever the same because the likelihood of the audience making the same exact set of choices is virtually zero. H2O: A Drop in the Ocean is a fictional story about water created using this technology. What it needs is that audience participation bit, so we’re trying to see if anyone might be interested in helping train it further. If you would like to help, the sign up is at
All we are asking for is a screen name of some kind. You can either provide an e-mail address on the sign up page or join our Facebook group to see any announcements that we make. The time is limited, we are releasing in 48 days.
Thanks a lot,
– The H2O Writer AI team
