From an interview with World Radio:
It’s actually the computer programmer, which is supplying that creativity.
So that’s where any creativity comes from—any smarter program. Somehow I don’t believe that it will happen.
I also know that people who looked at writing smarter programs using genetic algorithms and evolutionary programming have abandoned their search in large because they’ve tried a bunch of different things and nothing seems to work. They can’t get smarter programs that way.
But I also know people that are very excited about trying other ways. I don’t think they’re going to work, though.“Can we write creative computer programs?” at Mind Matters News
It seems that the programmer would have to make the computer smarter than he is, which means smarter than itself. That’s a challenge.
Computer engineer Robert J. Marks is one of the authors of Introduction to Evolutionary Informatics. He will also be addressing these topics at the COSM technology summit, October 23–25, 2019, in Bellevue, Washington.
