Recording: Creativity: Perspectives from Neuroscience and AI, Date TBA

Where does creativity come from? Insights from Neuroscience and Machine Learning.
We bring together experts in the field of neurology, psychology, cognitive science, music performance, and machine learning to explore the generative process humans undergo to create music. We will discuss research from diverse fields that shed some light on this complex process, and demonstrate how these new insights are being used to inspire new forms of creativity with technology.

Creativity is valued as the wellspring of culture, art, scientific discovery. But where does it come from? How do we recombine concepts and sensations to generate novelty? Is creativity useful? How does it relate to mental illness? What parts of the brain promote it?

Here we take the example of musical composition to attempt to answer these questions.
