Background and Topic Relevance

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become widespread in a large array of different domains: in the area of art creation, AI has gained increasing popularity by demonstrating its great potential. In recent years, AI showed a certain degree of creativity (in painting, composition, writing and design), but it also helped to analyze and study the mechanisms of creativity from a broader perspective: from the socio-anthropological to psychological as well as cognitive impact of the autonomous creative processes of artificial intelligence. These advances are leading to new opportunities research perspectives, while also posing challenging questions related to authorship, integrity, bias and evaluation of AI artistic outputs. This workshop aims to collect and bridge the gap among technologies and most recent advances in the area of creative AI in terms of the enabling creation, analysis and understanding technologies. The theme topic of the workshop will be AI and creativity.
