    PhD Thesis Proposal - Sabyasachee Baruah

    Committee Members: Shrikanth Narayanan (Chair), Jonathan May, Kristina Lerman, Emilio Ferrara, and Morteza Dehghani

    Title: Character Resolution and Attribution for Narrative Understanding

    Abstract: Narrativity is a mechanism through which human beings try to understand the world. We computationally define it as characters interacting with each other during events that relate in time and space. We propose a computational pipeline for narrative understanding and discuss its character centric aspects, resolution and attribution of characters. We contribute computational models and novel datasets towards these tasks in both the textual and visual domain. We work towards scaling our methods to long and multimodal narratives, and analyze how they portray characters across different attribute types and time.
