“…creativity is antithetical to the way artificial intelligence works. We develop machine learning by feeding in data about the way people react in certain situations.
… Creativity is looking at a situation many other people have faced and trying something entirely new.
“Whether the source of creativity is a mistake of the eye, influences from childhood manifested as counterintuitive insight, or a random mash-up of life experiences, we’ll never fully understand creativity’s origin…”
Scott Belsky, How to Thwart the Robots
When painting, you can jump tangentially with “what if I…?” impulses, not just follow the rules. If it’s not working, reach out of the box for a different medium, brush, colour, something that’s “not done”.
