Some `StoryAlity Theory’ research tools: artificial-writers, videogames, agent-based models, interactive-documentaries – etc etc
An artificial-writer computer program I created, called “The Robo-Raconteur”, which uses The StoryAlity Theory applied to movies (see my 2016 PhD thesis for more). The program creates – and then selects – Movie Pitches, demonstrating the algorithmic and evolutionary nature of creativity, (and BVSR).
The evolution of the Systems Model of Creativity (Csikszentmihalyi 1988-onwards)
An examination of the evolution of The Great Tree of Life (diagram).
Examining the evolution of memes (i.e., units of culture) by tracking the word “Brangelina” in Google Books, using Google NGram Viewer. Applied Culturology! Charles Darwin noted that words and languages evolve, way back in 1871. Memetics! Culture evolves.
