University of New Orleans computer science professor Stephen Ware is the recipient of a two-year $138,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to create artificial intelligence systems that integrate computer reasoning with the human art of storytelling.

WWNO’s Tech & Innovation Reporter Janaya Williams recently spoke with Ware about his Narrative Intelligence Lab at UNO, and the challenge of teaching computers how to “think” more like human beings.

The Moth StorySLAM takes place each month at Café Istanbul, where ten brave souls volunteer themselves to tell a true story in front on a live audience.

On Thursday, January 29 at the Joy Theatre, the winners of those StorySLAMs are going head-to-head at the Moth GrandSLAM. Comedian David Crabb is the special guest host of the evening, and WWNO’s Laine Kaplan-Levenson sat down to find out why he loves telling stories and hosting Moth events.

The Moth presents the GrandSLAM, a battle of wits and words - fierce, hilarious, heartbreaking and all points between. Listen as ten StorySLAM champs tell tales of being out of their element: the freak, the foreigner, dressed for the opera at the clambake, out of the loop, the only person in the loop, the voice of dissent, the lonely fool. Outsider, interloper, odd man out. The black sheep, the chatty monk, the juror with a doubt.
