Finding Creativity in an Artificial Artist
Norton, David; Heath, Derrall; Ventura, Dan
Journal of Creative Behavior, v47 n2 p106-124 Jun 2013
Creativity is an important component of human intelligence, and imbuing artificially intelligent systems with creativity is an interesting challenge. In particular, it is difficult to quantify (or even qualify) creativity. Recently, it has been suggested that conditions for attributing creativity to a system include: appreciation, imagination, and skill. We demonstrate and describe an original computer system (called DARCI) that is designed to produce images through creative means. We present methods for evaluating DARCI and other artificially creative systems with respect to appreciation, imagination, and skill, and use these methods to show that DARCI is arguably a creative system. (Contains 6 tables and 4 figures.)
