Creativity and Artificial Intelligence - A Conceptual Blending Approach


The book involves an in depth journey towards finding a computationally plausible model of creativity. Inspired by a multidisciplinary analysis of work on creativity, the author elaborates on what kinds of processes, principles and representations could lie underneath the act of creativity, eventually proposing a model based on the conceptual blending framework, from Fauconnier and Turner. Written by a researcher with a background in artificial intelligence, the book is the result of several years of explorations and discussions that cover several viewpoints. The author presents a top-down approach that intends to guide the reader from the general ideas and discussions towards the actual implementations and experiments.
