Promoting the Scientific Exploration of Computational Creativity

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description (abstract)

Creativity is a long-cherished and widely-studied aspect of human behavior that allows us to re-invent the familiar and to imagine the new. Computational Creativity (CC) proposes that computational modeling can yield important insights into the fundamental capabilities of both humans and machines. As an engineering endeavor, CC claims that it is possible to construct autonomous software artifacts that achieve novel and useful ends that are deserving of the label "creative". The goal of PROSECCO coordination action is to promote the transition of CC from niche interest area to an established discipline in its own right.
