Previous work of ours on Semantic Storytelling uses text analytics procedures including Named Entity Recognition and Event Detection. In this paper, we outline our longer-term vision on Semantic Storytelling and describe the current conceptual and technical approach. In the project that drives our research we develop AI-based technologies that are verified by partners from industry. One long-term goal is the development of an approach for Semantic Storytelling that has broad coverage and that

We provide first results on experiments that involve discourse parsing, applied to a concrete use case, "Explore the Neighbourhood!", which is based on a semi-automatically collected data set with documents about noteworthy people in one of Berlin's districts. Though automatically obtaining annotations for coherence relations from plain text is a non-trivial challenge, our preliminary results are promising. We envision our approach to be combined with additional features (NER, coreference resolution, knowledge graphs
