Creativity: Can Computers Cut It?
May 28, 2019
Gresham College
Computers are often parodied as machines that kill creativity. Yet modern works of creativity usually have a digital aspect, and many are wholly digital. We will look at technology that enables creativity (not always of a good kind) and the prospects for a machine to create works of art. We will examine computer- created artefacts and ask if we can tell if the creator was human or artificial.

A lecture by Richard Harvey, IT Livery Company Professor of Information Technology 28 May 2019
