Virtual mental space: interacting with the characters of works of literature

Abstract : We build the software implementation of virtual mental space: its inhabitants are interacting with the literature characters in natural language. The players are encouraged to ask questions about intentions and desires, knowledge and believes, pretending and deceiving of the literature characters. Works of literature are identified based on the patterns of mental interaction between the characters. Reasoning about mental states and natural language processing with the semantic focus are the techniques required to implement the literature search component of the virtual mental world.
