Computational Creativity Group

Welcome to the Computational Creativity Group (CCG) of the Department of Computing, Imperial College London, UK.

We conduct Artificial Intelligence research into the development and combination of AI systems for creative tasks. We are interested in computational creativity in both the arts and sciences, in particular in pure mathematics, bioinformatics, graphic design, video games and the visual arts. (What is Computational Creativity?)

If you have any questions about the research in the group, please email the relevant group member, or for general enquiries, please email Simon Colton (sgc@doc.ic.ac.uk).
