Michael DeBuse

Michael DeBuse is a PhD student in Computer Science. He received his MS in Computer Science from BYU in 2021. His academic interests are in Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, specifically in modeling narrative. His passion, however, is in writing, having drafted 8 full-length fiction novels over the past 11 years. His research combines his passion with his career aspirations. For his Masters Thesis, Michael developed a system that ingests a novel and outputs a narrative flow graph of that novel (a graph structure of scene relationships through the story). He hopes to get a career in research, continuing in the field of Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence.

Outside Computer Science and writing, his interests include video games, reading, cooking, art, politics, and the outdoors.
