Presenting NovelPerspective, a tool for transforming (modifying) e-books, based on the point of view character. Epic fantasy novels are notable for their large cast of point of view characters. Sometimes a reader doesn't care for some of the characters, or just wants to read a single character's story line (on a repeat reading, for instance). NovelPerspective uses machine learning to discover the main character of a chapter, and transforms the book to include or exclude characters.

This talk will demo the tool and explain how it works. Use it online at:
