Vortrag zum Thema "creative self-driving cars": Prof. Selmer Bringsjord, RPI, New York

Wien (OTS) - Artists are typically assumed to be creative. The same goes for great scientists. In general, we can say that, in the human case, certain roles often call for creativity. The flip side is that it's generally assumed that certain roles do not call for creativity in the human sphere. For example, most people don't associate creativity with the human role of driver. A taxi/Uber/Lyft driver is not what first comes to mind when one is asked to supply examples of even MacGyveresque creativity, let alone of what, say, a Mozart could muster. Given this background, it would seem to be safe to infer that self-driving cars don't need to be creative. I explain why this inference is fallacious. Drawing then on work in AI and creativity (including some of my own research in this area), and on real-life examples of human-driver creativity, I lay out preliminary steps toward the engineering of a creative self-driving car.
