Cross-Domain Analogy in Automated Text Generation



Appropriate use of analogy in computer generated texts would constitute a great advantage in
contexts where complex information needs to be communicated.
This paper presents research aimed at improving the stylistic
quality of the texts generated by a natural language generation system
with the use of analogy.
A generic architecture and a specific implementation for solving this problem are described. This implementation takes the form of a multiagent architecture in which
several independent modules are connected, each one dealing with a subtask
of the process - enriching domain information, finding structure alignment between domains,
inserting analogies in a text generation pipeline.
Initial results are presented, and several issues arising from the observed behaviour are
discussed, with special attention to possible refinements of the proposal.
