Tobias Koetter, Kilian Thiel and Michael Berthold: Domain Bridging Associations Support Creativity. In: Computational Creativity 2010 ICCC 2010. 200-204.



This paper proposes a new approach to support creativity through assisting the discovery of unexpected associations across differ- ent domains. This is achieved by integrating information from heteroge- neous domains into a single network, enabling the interactive discovery of links across the corresponding information resources. We discuss three different pattern of domain crossing associations in this context.
