Abstract

This study investigates the use of event calculus for understanding stories written in Arabic natural language. System makes a representation for commonsense knowledge and story events and then performs a commonsense reasoning to infer the details events which are not explicitly described in the story; furthermore it manages changes in objects properties over time and handles the actions synchronizations problem.
