Magnus Jändel: Computational Creativity in Naturalistic Decision–Making. In: Computational Creativity 2013 ICCC 2013, 118-122.



Creativity can be of great importance in decision-making and applying computational creativity to decision support is comparatively feasible since novelty and value often can be evaluated by a reasonable human effort or by simulation. A prominent model for how humans make real-life decisions is reviewed and we identify and discuss six opportunities for enhancing the process with computational creativity. It is found that computational creativity can be employed for suggesting courses of action, unnoticed situation features, plan improvements, unseen anomalies, situation reassess- ments and information to explore. For each such enhance- ment opportunity tentative computational creativity methods are examined. Relevant trends in decision support research are related to the resulting framework and we speculate on how computational creativity methods such as story genera- tion could be used for decision support.
