  author={Anna K. Jordanous and B. Keller},
  journal={PLoS ONE},
Creativity is a complex, multi-faceted concept encompassing a variety of related aspects, abilities, properties and behaviours. If we wish to study creativity scientifically, then a tractable and well-articulated model of creativity is required. Such a model would be of great value to researchers investigating the nature of creativity and in particular, those concerned with the evaluation of creative practice. This paper describes a unique approach to developing a suitable model of how creative… Expand
Creativity vs quality: why the distinction matters when evaluating computational creativity systems
The evaluation of computational creativity systems is increasingly becoming part of standard practice in computational creativity research, particularly with recent development in evaluation tools.Expand
Measuring creativity: an account of natural and artificial creativity
Despite the recent upsurge of interest in the investigation of creativity, the question of how to measure creativity is arguably underdiscussed. The aim of this paper is to address this gap,Expand
Artificial Creativity and General Intelligence
It is hard to deny that the notions of creativity and intelligence are inherently connected. But what does this correlation amount to? Is creativity a necessary desideratum of intelligence? On theExpand
Analyzing ambiguity in the standard definition of creativity
The increasingly rich and diverse literature on creativity has its core in psychology, but spans the cognitive sciences from artificial intelligence to philosophy and borrows from the widerExpand
Grammatical Evolution and Creativity

  • Computer Science
  • Handbook of Grammatical Evolution
  • 2018
It is proposed that evolutionary systems, and in particular GE, are highly suitable to the study of creativity as they can offer much scope in representation through grammars while allowing exploration and the possibility of self-adaptivity through the development of novel self-referential fitness measures.

The profile of music as a creative domain in people’s conceptions: Expanding Runco & Bahleda’s 1986 study on implicit theories of creativity in a conceptual replication
Concepts of creativity in music usually focus on explicit theoretical assumptions based on models from psychology research. In recent years, the fields of psychology and education have becomeExpand
Computational Creativity and Music Generation Systems: An Introduction to the State of the Art
A picture of the research on the definition and the evaluation of creativity, both human and computational, needed to understand how computational means can be used to obtain creative behaviors and its importance within Artificial Intelligence studies is given. Expand
Exploration of Students’ Creativity Based on Demography
Creativity development can be implemented through a directed and systematic program. However, no research to date provides a comprehensive insight into student creativity, which results in theExpand

An Evaluation of the Impact of Constraints on the Perceived Creativity of Narrative Generating Software
The results show a sweet spot for maximal creativity closer to the less constrained end of the spectrum, which demonstrates the potential for more creative software by the relaxing of constraints. Expand


Defining Creativity: Finding Keywords for Creativity Using Corpus Linguistics Techniques
This work combines several viewpoints for a more general consensus of how creativity is defined, using a corpus linguistics approach, to uncovering key sub-components of creativity which can be used for computational assessment of creativity. Expand
Evaluating computational creativity : a standardised procedure for evaluating creative systems and its application
This thesis proposes SPECS: a Standardised Procedure for Evaluating Creative Systems. No methodology has been accepted as standard for evaluating the creativity of a system in the field ofExpand
A Standardised Procedure for Evaluating Creative Systems: Computational Creativity Evaluation Based on What it is to be Creative
A Standardised Procedure for Evaluating Creative Systems (SPECS) is proposed, and a collection of key components of creativity, identified empirically from discussions of human and computational creativity, are offered. Expand
Four PPPPerspectives on computational creativity in theory and in practice
This paper argues that the broader views of creativity afforded by the Four Ps is vital in guiding us towards more comprehensively useful computational investigations of creativity. Expand
The social psychology of creativity: A componential conceptualization.
Despite the clear importance of social and environmental' influences on creative performance, a social psychology of creativity is yet to be developed. Theory and research have focused almostExpand
