Socially Embedded Models of Creativity
Digital sound and music, new approaches to music composition, performance and interaction, artificial life inspired creative computing, theories of creativity, theories of the evolution of human musical behaviour.
Computational models of creativity contribute to an understanding of the process of creativity in individual humans and human societies, as well as the notion of creativity in an abstract sense (which includes other creative processes such as biological evolution). Such models can lead to new technologies in the arts and can enhance our understanding of art. The cultural richness of the internet now offers a phenomenal training and testing ground for computationally creative systems. Using models of social behaviour that ground creativity in evolutionarily viable motivations, experiments in computationally creative systems situated in real cultural contexts are poised to make a major contribution to this body of theory.
