Thoughts on Computational Creativity

Abstract

There is a close relationship between computational creativity in the arts and generative art. Prior work is summarized here as to how complexity theory can serve as a theoretical context for generative art. This is extended to show how complexity theory can also illuminate discussions regarding computational creativity. Another prior proposal is also summarized. It suggests that a world-view called “complexism” can reconcile the current differences between the modern culture of science and the postmodern culture of the humanities. This line is also extended to considerations regarding computational creativity. Particular attention is extended here to the issues of authorship, progress, and aesthetic measurement in computational creativity. Finally, under artistic license, I discuss some very speculative ideas regarding computational creativity that I explore in my current artwork.
