AI for Creativity
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has in recent years moved out of the lab and into real-world contexts, with current state-of-the-art systems radically besting human cognition in a number of domains. Exponential leaps in computational power and development of AI invite us to think about what’s next, from new applications, to the disruption of human work and traditional industries. Many suggest that of impacted fields, creativity is one that will avoid coming disruption. There is however no reason to consider creativity outside of AI reach, and development in this area represents a huge opportunity to use emerging AI technologies to augment human creativity.
