Simon Colton: teaching computers to be creative

From Nine To Noon, 10:13 am on 8 September 2015

Simon Colton is a computer scientist, currently working in the Computational Creativity Group at Goldsmiths College in the University of London, where he is Professor of Computational Creativity. He works on software that behaves in ways that mimick creativity in humans, such as The Painting Fool, an artificial intelligence that he hopes will one day be accepted as an artist in its own right.

He talks with Kathryn Ryan.
