Bringing storytelling to life using natural language processing and virtual 3D worlds

The MUSE project targets the creation of 3D virtual words from written texts. This is based on the development of an algorithm which takes natural language as input, associates the content to 3D visual data stored in a dedicated data base, and generates the described virtual scenario. The outcome of the MUSE project may have applications in a variety of fields, from facilitating the explanation of instructions to the improvement of medical treatments.
