Autumn School on Computational Creativity (ASCC ), Porvoo 2013
The University of Helsinki and the PROSECCO Network for Promoting the Scientific Exploration of Computational Creativity organized an international autumn school on computational creativity.
Creativity is a long-cherished and widely-studied aspect of human behavior that allows us to re-invent the familiar and to imagine the new. Computational Creativity (CC) is a recent but burgeoning area of creativity research that explores the potential of computers to be autonomously creative or to collaborate as co-creators with humans.
As a scientific endeavor, CC proposes that computational modeling can yield important insights into the fundamental capabilities of both humans and machines. As an engineering endeavor, CC claims that it is possible to construct autonomous software artifacts that achieve novel and useful ends that are deserving of the label "creative". If sufficiently nurtured, the products of CC research can have a significant impact on many aspects of modern life, with particular consequences for the worlds of entertainment, culture, science, education, design and art.
