Modeling Creativity (doctoral dissertation, 2013) explores how creativity can be represented using computational approaches. Our aim is to construct computer models that exhibit creativity in an artistic context, that is, that are capable of generating or evaluating an artwork (visual or linguistic), an interesting new idea, a subjective opinion. The research was conducted in 2008-2012 at the Computational Linguistics Research Group (CLiPS, University of Antwerp) under the supervision of Prof… 
Inspiration or Preparation?: Explaining Creativity in Scientific Enterprise
This work directly contrast authors' information consumption behaviors against their knowledge products, and develops a predictive framework that accurately identifies the most critical knowledge to fostering target scientific innovations.
Automated Blend Naming Based on Human Creativity Examples
Which principles people use when they name new things as results of blending are investigated to uncover patterns with high creative potential and to use them for automated generation of names for new creations or phenomena.
Serendipity or Preparedness ? Quantifying Creativity in Scientific Enterprise
  • 2016
Human creativity is the ultimate driving force behind all of scientific progress. The building blocks of innovations are often embodied in existing knowledge, yet it is creativity that blends

An EEG study of creativity in expert classical musicians
In this study, expert classical musicians were asked to play their instrument while being monitored with a wireless EEG headset, and the real-time capabilities of wireless EEG monitoring were explored with a data visualisation during live performance on stage.
An Evo-Devo System for Algorithmic Composition that Actually Works
This work describes its evo-devo core, fundamented on evolutionary search of Lindenmayer systems, and presents some applications that derived from the particular functioning of this system, and discusses how these new fields of application might be disruptive in the music field.
Generation of Concept-Representative Symbols
A system that uses background knowledge about the world to find connections among concepts, with the goal of generating symbols for a given concept, has a great potential in the area of Graphic Design.
Seeking Divisions of Domains on Semantic Networks by Evolutionary Bridging
This work proposes an evolutionary high performance algorithm that extracts two semantic sub-graphs from a knowledge base to be used as building blocks in computational blending processes.
Imagining Imagination: A Computational Framework Using Associative Memory Models and Vector Space Models
The Associative Conceptual Imagination (ACI) framework is introduced that uses associative memory models in conjunction with vector space models to facilitate imagining and then creating new and interesting artifacts.
Generation of concept-representative symbols Position paper
The visual representation of concepts or ideas through the use of simple shapes has always been explored in the history of Humanity, and it is believed to be the origin of writing. We focus on


Creativity Versus the Perception of Creativity in Computational Systems

It is argued that it is not appropriate to base the assessment of a system on its output alone, and that the way it produces artefacts also needs to be taken into account.
Beyond Big and Little: The Four C Model of Creativity
Most investigations of creativity tend to take one of two directions: everyday creativity (also called “little-c”), which can be found in nearly all people, and eminent creativity (also called
The concept of creativity: Prospects and paradigms.
If one wanted to select the best novelist, artist, entrepreneur, or even chief executive officer, one would most likely want someone who is creative. Indeed, today many CEOs are selected not for
Curious Design Agents and Artificial Creativity - A Synthetic Approach to the Study of Creative Behaviour
Creative products are generally recognised as satisfying two requirements: firstly they are useful, and secondly they are novel. Much effort in AI and design computing has been put into developing
Implications of a Systems Perspective for the Study of Creativity
Psychologists tend to see creativity exclusively as a mental process. In this chapter, I will propose that such an approach cannot do justice to the phenomenon of creativity, which is as much a
A History of Research on Creativity
The title we have given this chapter is meant to signal to readers that we recognize that the history we describe is one among other possible histories of the same subject. This chapter truly
Personality, situation, and creativity.
Because creativity has to do with the production of new ideas, one might think that its study rightly falls within the domain of cognitive psychology. Of course, creativity involves cognition, but it
The associative basis of the creative process.
  • S. Mednick
  • Psychology, Medicine
    Psychological review
  • 1962
An associative interpretation of the process of creative thinking is presented and three ways in which creative solutions may be achieved are indicated—serendipity, similarity, and mediation.
Biological bases of creativity.
Creativity is a rare trait. This is presumably because it requires the simultaneous presence of a number of traits (e.g., intelligence, perseverance, unconventionality, the ability to think in a
A preliminary framework for description, analysis and comparison of creative systems
It is suggested that Boden's descriptive framework, once elaborated in detail, is more uniform and more powerful than it first appears.
