In recent years the field of computational creativity has received growing attention from a widening range of researchers, motivated by a sense that work in the area has broad interdisciplinary implications. The contributions of philosophers, cognitive psychologists, computer scientists, and artists are increasingly pointing to an open question: what would it take to convince a critical observer that a computational agent is behaving creatively?
Some argue a machine is creative if it simulates or replicates human creativity, suggesting, for instance, evaluation of AI systems via a Turing-style test. Others have conceived of computational creativity as an inherently different discipline, where computer generated (art)work should not be judged in the same terms as traditional output, i.e. as being necessarily producible by a human artist, or as having similar attributes to human art.
This symposium aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss recent technical and philosophical developments in the field, in order to assess the future of our relationship with computers and the way we perceive them.
