Creativity, a phenomenon once considered uniquely human, can now be observed in the behaviors of human-made artifacts like artificial intelligence (A.I.). It presents an unprecedented opportunity to expand the current understanding of human creativity and explore new art, design, business opportunities, and social systems. This interdisciplinary lecture course will examine the attributes of creativity from anthropology to psychology to computer science to innovation to modern arts to critical theories. The topics the course will engage include, not limited to: creativity theories, artificial neural networks, neuroaesthetics, computational creativity, deep fakes, algorithmic injustice, disruptive innovation, and surveillance capitalism. Students must register for both the lecture and discussion section of this course. [This ULEC is in category 1, Tools for Social Change.]
