Artificial Creativity

Artificial Creativity is the approach of giving artificial intelligence system the ability to create and co-create content, reactions or behavior, that is considered "artistic". On a larger scale "artificial creativity systems" can play and act with in collaboration with humans, in order to produce artistic expressions. Some strategies to do so is pattern-matching, in combination with artificial-intelligence algorithms, for example to create musical patterns.

On a broader scale, artificial creativity is he key-ingredient, to make robots an integrated part of a society, that is owned by humans. We usually expect robots to somehow act as humans. And acting as humans inherits reaction to human behavior.

On the other hand, artificial creativity is an utopia. It is like the supercomputer or the superbrain from the 60ies, that still do not exist. In fact artificial creativity can evolve and grow out of emergent behaviour as well. The supercomputer for example still do not exist, but there are very powerful websites out there, like Google, Last.fm or Wikipedia. They are strong, because they strongly interact with humans.

Examples for music-based artificial creativity: Absolut Quartett, Yellow Drum Machine Robot
