UCLIC Research Seminar Series
*Please note changed time of the seminar (14:30 instead of 15:00)
In this talk Anna Kantosalo explores key concepts to frame the research area of human-computer co-creativity. The talk sets the stage with a brief look into what creativity is and describes the landscape of human-computer co-creativity through five key concepts: collective, collaboration, contributions, community and context. The talk then dives deeper into how interaction between creative computers and humans can be conceptualised and what kind of roles computers can take in a creative collective.
Anna Kantosalo is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Helsinki and a service designer for AI based applications at Siili Solutions. Anna is a pioneer in the area of human-computer co-creativity research, a discipline investigating collaboration between humans and creative machines. Anna has written a dissertation on the design and evaluation of human-computer co-creative systems and has since developed useful concepts and frameworks for analysing human-computer collectives on different levels. To give back to the community Anna has organised several workshops on co-creativity, HCI and generative systems, as well as chaired the program committee for the 13th International Conference on Computational Creativity, the main conference for computational creativity research.
