CG-art, understanding computational creativity: An aesthetic analysis from Margaret Boden's definition

    Activity: Talk and presentationAcademic presentationAcademic


    There is currently a criticism about the possible artistic creativity that an algorithm could have. In support of the above, the term CG-Art as defined by Margaret Boden (2011) seems to have no exponent yet. Moreover, it has been pointed out that, rather than a matter of primitive technological development, CG-Art would have in its very foundations the inability to exist. This is because art is considered to be one of the most unique and exclusive human manifestations of our species. On the contrary, I propose that the denial of CG-Art has an anthropocentric bias. In order to do so, I make use of the recent studies that, from the cognitive sciences, have been carried out on artistic creativity. In this way I intend to convince the audience that behind the denial of the artistic and creative capacity of machines, there necessarily lies a denialist mysticism of current scientific advances.
