Abstract: 

Authoring in the context of Interactive Storytelling is inherently difficult, and there is a need for authoring tools that both enable and assist authors in the creation of new content. In this thesis, I discuss my approach of creating an AI-assisted authoring tool via the concept of mixed-initiative systems. I introduce my tool, Mímisbrunnur which uses this concept to assist authors in the creation of story content. I explain how the tool functions and introduce its fundamental components, including Natural Language Processing, a Suggestion Generator, and three authoring modules. I then show how I went about evaluating the tool and give the results of the evaluation.
