Patrick Summerhays McNally and Kristian Hammond: Picasso, Pato and Perro: Reconciling Procedure with Creativity. In: Computational Creativity 2011 ICCC 2011, pp. 78-83.



This paper presents and details 'Pato and Perro on the Movies,' a system that generates web comics about re- cently released movies. Information is extracted about movies from the internet and a series of panels are drawn with dialogue to set up a punchline in the comic'- s final frame. Definitions of creativity commonly used to examine computational processes are presented and used to examine this system. The system is used to dis- cuss a common critique of creative systems, namely that procedural creation inherently limits the range of potential content produced. This paper argues that pro- cedure and creativity can be reconciled, and that much of the content produced by humans is subject to similar critique. Finally, we discuss the implications of charac- terizing many human acts of creation as procedural.
