Is possible that a computer could compose a symphony, write a prize-winning novel, or paint a masterpiece?
In The Creativity Code, Marcus du Sautoy examines the nature of creativity and whether computers are able to push the boundaries of human’s creativity to new levels.
As well as providing an essential guide into how algorithms work, and the mathematical rules underpinning them, he asks how much of our emotional response to art is a product of our brains reacting to pattern and structure, and exactly what it is to be creative in mathematics, art, language and music.
