Computers That Are Creative?

Can Computers be Creative?

European Commission | July 2, 2015

The EU-funded What-if Machine (WHIM) project not only generates fictional storylines, but also judges their potential usefulness and appeal. It represents a major advance in the field of computational creativity.
Science rarely looks at the whimsical, but that is changing as a result of the aptly named WHIM project. The ambitious project is building a software system able to invent and evaluate fictional ideas.

We are funded as a STREP (short-term research project) by the FP7 programme of the European Commission, specifically to address objective ICT-2013.8.1: Technologies and scientific foundations in the field of creativity. Our project acronym stands for the What-If Machine, and that is our aim: to build a software system able to invent, evaluate and present fictional ideas with real cultural value for artefacts such as stories, jokes, films, paintings and advertisements.]>
