A structured resource for computational humor

Abstract

There doesn`t exist neither a real conversational system generating humor (though programs which in some way are able to generate very specific kinds of funny tests have been implemented); or any application recycling humor in a context sensitive way; i.e. detecting an appropriate situation for a funny output and selecting the most suitable material. At the `Dipartimento delle Tecnologie Cognitive e della Comunicazione` of Irst, in Trento, a computational humor project was launched for aiming at creating a system that uses a structured database of funny texts relevant to the context. it is important that humor is not inopportune; proposing funny texts in the wrong context could have disturbing effects on the hearer. For this reason the Irst project is intended as an e-mail answering system offering a joke (from a database) sensitive to the text of the sent messages. The present work is concerned with the establishment of the appropriate features for the jokes` database, to use inside the Irst `e-mail answering system`, and the creation of the database itself. The parameters used to analyze the jokes in the survey, then, are tailored to generate a suitable structured resource for this implementation, but also general enough to be useful in any system concerned in computational humor
