Background/Abstract

With the rapid technological advancement, the traditional techniques for stimulating creativity have been replaced and enhanced by technology-driven tools, such as virtual rooms, generative cognitive system, various communication tools and digital interface. Companies, designer and artists have already started to use and build their own digital interface to support their creative process, as well as to propose tools that can empower human potential.

This talk present and discusses the various opportunities that digital technologies offer for supporting and augmenting the creative process and the human factors of creativity. These opportunities have been identified through an exploration of the Digital Creativity domain focused on the analysis of projects, research, and experiments that investigate and test the potential of some digital and interactive systems to enhance, empower and stimulate human creative abilities.

This exploration has been guided by the following question: “In what ways can digital technology be adopted to empower the creative ability of human being?”.

Four main categories of human-computer interaction that promote creativity will be presented through a description and a case collection.
