Hannu Toivonen: Computational creativity

Department of Computer science, University of Helsinki

Computational creativity is the art, science, philosophy and engineering of computational systems which, by taking on particular responsibilities, exhibit behaviours that unbiased observers would deem to be creative. In this short talk, I will introduce key concepts in computational creativity. The focus is on how to talk about creativity in the context of computers, not on technical implementations of creativity. I will also give examples that illustrate computational creativity and conceptual issues related to creativity of computers.

Caroline di Bernardi Luft: The Neuroscience of Creativity

School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, Queen Mary, University of London 

Creativity involves coming up with novel ideas. But where does it come from, and how can we nurture it? Often, we feel that ideas come out of the blue and that we have no control over them. But is that true and why? In this talk, you will learn about the brain mechanisms behind the generation and evaluation of novel ideas. You will also learn the neural mechanisms behind overcoming obvious ideas and how to apply this knowledge to become more creative.
