Creative Artificial Intelligence

Writing a screenplay with AI

A research project about creativity and collaboration with Artificial Intelligence.

This scientific-artistic dissertation is set in the areas of storytelling and artificial intelligence (AI). It examines the question of creativity in the age of DeepLearning by critically exploring the potentials of AI and using AI artistically. How does the concept of storytelling change when it is produced by machines? 

The scientific question is about the nature of creativity and the co-creation between humans and machines: are machines creative or do they just simulate it? What is the difference between human and machine creativity and how could both enter into a fruitful exchange?

The artistic question is: How can a screenplay be co-written by AI? What is the nature of creative processes? What kind of machine intelligence is needed to be creative together with a human? How does a dialogue develop between the human and the machine? What are the tools of this process of co-creation?

The artistic output of this PhD will be the screenplay of a feature film as well as a making-of following that collaboration process.

This project is a scientific-artistic PhD by Tobias Frühmorgen at the Filmuniversität Babelsberg.
