Lecture | The creativity code

Lezing | The creativity code

Award-winning author and mathematician prof. Marcus du Sautoy explores the future of creativity and how machine learning will disrupt, enrich, and transform our understanding of what it means to be human.

In his latest book 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 it is to be creative in mathematics, art, language and music. In an exploration of both AI and the essence of being human, he finds out how long it might be before machines come up with something creative, and whether they might jolt us into being more imaginative ourselves.
