Interested in learning and creativity. In both humans and machines.
Creativity and computation – can we go beyond simple CRUD apps? Creating, Redoing, Updating, and Deleting. Most of todays apps connect you with information other people have produced, and wind up conforming to a very simple set of design criteria. What would it take to have a computer produce novel information and solve problems? The ability to solve problems in unique ways is often labeled a cornerstone of human civilization but we don’t have a good understanding of it. At least, not a complete enough understanding to convert it to code. If we can change that, we can open the floodgates of computational power as applied to complex problems.
