Law, Language, and Emergent Creativity: The Algorithmic Turn
Emergent Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are now able to emulate the creative process itself by writing books that qualify for literary awards, composing music, and painting portraits that sell on the world auction stage. This body of technology, which I refer to as emergent creativity, provokes an entirely new way of understanding the creative arts, which were once exclusively the domain of human beings. And leaves us wondering if we are shifting the powers of moral and social norm-setting previously held by authors, artists and musicians into the hands of AI? My doctoral research investigates how emergent creativity challenges our current understanding of law and its application, and seeks to highlight gateways to new understandings of the relationship between humans and emergent creativity and points of control.
