A Computational Model for Gossip Initiation

Abstract [en]

We are interested in creating non-player characters (NPCs) in games that are capable of engaging in gossip conversations. Gossip could for instance be used to spread news, manipulate, and create tension between characters in the game, so it can have a functional as well as a social purpose. To accomplish this we need a computational model of gossip and such a model does not yet exist. As a first step in that direction we therefore present a model for initiating gossip that calculates whether it is appropriate for the NPC to start a gossip conversation based on the following factors: The (perceived) relationship between the NPC and the player character (PC); the relationship between each of the participants and the potential target; the news value of the gossip story; and how sensitive the story is.
