The Creativity Code

Marcus du Sautoy

Overview

Computers process large amounts of data much faster than humans ever could — but do they hold creative potential? For decades, AI has been suggesting our music, helping us with dating, and driving investment decisions. AI's even gotten into the business of making art.

Human creativity has long been opposed to the cartesian logic of computers, but maybe we have unknowingly underestimated our machine counterparts. AI is capable of writing poetry, composing music, and even painting — but can machines create, or do they simply copy? For Oxford mathematician Marcus du Sautoy, the answer lies within complex algorithms.

The Creativity Code: How AI is Learning to Write, Paint and Think explores the history of AI and its implications for our present and future society. New technologies put our perception of creativity and humanity in perspective but also provide us with the ability to uncover new realms of artistic expression.
