Computational and Cognitive Creativity

An interesting article about the use of systems like Watson to add creative dimensions to what were in the past purely computational problems.    We made this observation a decade ago.  If you can supply direct computational solutions to simple parts of a problem, you can test many more solutions quickly, adding the ability to create and test quickly. It's another argument for abductive design. Now powered by AI style approaches. Good examples in article.

More on abductive thinking and design.

Update:  It was pointed out to me by Brian Moon that the paper linked to just above uses concept maps to illustrate this and related concepts such as 'sensemaking'.  Taking a look at papers this article points to.
