Jones, Daniel ; Oliver Bown ; Jon McCormack ; Pachet, Francois ; Young, Michael ; Berry, Rodney ; Asaf, Iris ; Porter, Benjamin: Stimulating creative flow through computational feedback. In: Dagstuhl Seminar 09291 2009: Computational Creativity: An Interdisciplinary Approach.



This report summarises the discussion and experimental work produced by the authors at the 2009 symposium Computational Creativity: An Interdisciplinary Approach, Dagstuhl Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik. It outlines the motivation for using computational techniques to stimulate human creativity, briefly summarising its historical context and predecessors, and describes two software studies produced by the group as base-line exemplars of these ideas.
