An interdisciplinary volume on how computers are reshaping creativity in art and science.
Computers, the Internet, and a whole array of new technologies are fundamentally changing our world. While the last decade has seen the rise of social computing, we see the next decade as one where computers will bring important changes to our understanding of creativity and the role computers can take in the creative process. Computers make us globally connected. They allow immediate access to more information than at any other time in human history. But does this new technology make us more creative? Can we build machines that are independently creative or that significantly extend our creativity into new domains? Do collaborative relationships between humans and computers enhance or curtail creative expression? These questions, and many more, are addressed in this interdisciplinary book which introduces new theories and ideas on creativity from the perspectives of science and art.
