Extending the Creative Systems Framework for the Analysis of Creative Agent Societies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


Design and analysis of creative agent societies is often done in the context of computational sociology, which has evolved into its own field called computational social creativity. In this paper, we propose a formal framework for describing and analysing creative agent societies based on the Creative Systems Framework (CSF). We extend the CSF for single agents to include creative agent societies. The extended CSF allows us to describe society wide phenomena relevant for creativity, identify how individual agents relate to the whole society and characterise societal consequences caused by adopting certain policies. All these formal tools may be used when analysing designated creative agent societies. We demonstrate this by devising a straightforward practical procedure which may be used to gain insight into the influence individual agents have on the society over time.
