David Norton, Derrall Heath, Dan Ventura: Establishing Appreciation In a Creative System. In: Computational Creativity 2010 ICCC 2010. 26-35.



Colton discusses three conditions for attributing creativity to a system: appreciation, imagination, and skill. We describe an original computer system (called DARCI) that is designed to eventually produce images through creative means. We show that DARCI has already started gaining appreciation, and has even demonstrated imagination, while skill will come later in her development.
