Computational creativity studies the potential of computers to act as creators and think creatively in arts and science projects. Five computational creativity projects, funded under the European Commission’s Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme, ran between 2013 and 2016 with great outcomes.
The FET initiative “Creative ICT” consisted of five projects: CoInvent, ConCreTe, Lrn2Cre8, WHIM, and the Coordination Action project PROSECCO. These unique projects brought together top researchers designing computational systems that are creative on their own by combining elements from artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, philosophy, and the arts.
