Title:The Effect of Input Knowledge on Creativity
Authors: Simon Colton ; Alison Pease ; Graeme Ritchie
Date:Nov 2001
Publication Title:Proceedings of ICCBR-2001
Publication Type:Conference Paper
Recently, many programs have been written to perform tasks which are usually regarded as requiring creativity in humans. We can derive some commonalities between these programs in order to build further creative programs. Key to this is the derivation of certain measures which assess how creative a program is. Starting from recent proposals by Ritchie, we define possible measures which describe the extent to which a program produces novel output. We discuss how this relates to the creativity of the program.
