CREATIVITY CODE: How AI is Learning to Write, Paint & Think

MARCUS DU SAUTOY    Book Number: 89827    Product format: Hardback

Could a machine one day create a truly original work of art? Illuminating not only the work of coders and creators but the mathematics of chaos that underpin art and our emotional responses to it, this is a brilliant and joyous read, fact packed and funny. Marcus du Sautoy examines the nature of creativity, as well as providing an essential guide to how algorithms work and the mathematical rules underpinning them. He asks how much our emotional response to art is a product of our brains reacting to pattern and structure, and exactly what it is to be creative in mathematics, art, language and music. Could a computer ever compose a symphony, write a prize-winning novel, or paint a masterpiece? And if so, would we be able to tell the difference? New developments in Artificial Intelligence are shaking up the status quo as we find out how many of the tasks humans engage in can be done equally well, if not better, by machines. The result is a fascinating and very different exploration into AI and the essence of what it means to be human by the Oxford mathematics professor. 328pp, diagrams.
