Bridging Generative Deep Learning and Computational Creativity

We aim to help bridge the research fields of generative deep learning and computational creativity by way of the creative AI community, and to advocate the common objective of more creatively autonomous generative learning systems. We argue here that generative deep learning models are inherently limited in their creative abilities because of a focus on learning for perfection. To highlight this, we present a series of techniques which actively diverge from standard usage of deep learning, with the specific intention of producing novel and interesting artefacts. We end by describing how a two-way bridge between the research fields could be built.
