Human and artificial creativity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


When faced with complex real-world problems, humans display resourcefulness, flexibility, creativity, active learning, improvisation, and critical and analytical thinking. Humans have a unique capacity to be creative that AI has yet to duplicate. However, AI brings new possibilities. Most humans believe creativity is a uniquely human ability that cannot be copied, especially not by AI. This chapter explores two views: (1) AI cannot be creative and (2) AI can be creative. This chapter uses a literature study as research methodology. The main finding is that there are people who believe that AI cannot be creative and should be feared, while others believe that AI can amplify human effectiveness, offer more opportunities to be creative, and should not be feared. The recommendations are that education, knowledge sharing, and working with AI tools and programs can change people's negative mindset and make AI a valuable partner in human creativity endeavors.
