Could a Created Being ever be Creative? Some Philosophical Remarks on Creativity and AI Development
: This paper allots creativity a central role in enabling human beings to develop beyond the undertaking and/or fulfilment of simple primary functions. This contention is significant for Artificial Intelligence development since attempts to imbue artificially created-beings with ever greater levels of autonomy necessarily raises questions about the potential for creativity. This paper begins by highlighting key problems which occur as a result of attempts to offer definitive criteria for creativity, and uses this as a springboard to show that whilst certain AI programs may appear to present elements of creativity, the notion that these programmed acts could be creative in the sense in which we use and understand this term, is in fact mistaken. If we consider notions of creativity from a Wittgensteinian perspective we may yet achieve clarity about a subject which is often considered intangible and mysterious, whilst also coming to see its inherent irreplicability.1
