Publisher's Synopsis

Are computational systems capable of generating art, music, and related cultural artifacts? Can machines be creative? In Beyond the Creative Species, Oliver Bown offers a multidisciplinary examination of computational creativity, analysing the impact of advanced generative technologies on art and music. Drawing on a wide range of disciplines, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, design, social theory, the psychology of creativity, and creative practice research, Bown argues that to understand computational creativity, we must not only consider what computationally creative algorithms actually do, but also examine creative artistic activity itself.
