The Creativity Code: How AI is Learning to Write, Paint and Think

Marcus du Sautoy

Saturday 12th October 17:00 - 18:00 | Northwood House

In The Creativity Code, Marcus du Sautoy examines the nature of creativity, as well as providing an essential guide into how algorithms work, and the mathematical rules underpinning them. He asks how much of our emotional response to art is a product of our brains reacting to pattern and structure, and exactly what is it to be creative in mathematics, art, language and music.

Du Sautoy finds out how long it might be before machines come up with something creative, and whether they might jolt us into being more imaginative in turn. The result is a fascinating and very different exploration into both AI and the essence of what it means to be human, from one of the UK’s greatest science writers today.
