About this Video

How to make computers creative has been a hard problem in AI for more than half a century. Creative problem solving is neither entirely random nor strictly logical. Given this conundrum, how can we make algorithms capable of creative thinking? Dishita Turakhia takes inspiration from how humans harness their cognitive diversity and interactive abilities for creative thinking. If we can find simple computational frameworks that can be cognitively diverse and interact with us, we can build machines capable of becoming creative partners in future. Dishita Turakhia is a researcher at MIT CSAIL’s Human Computer Interaction lab. Prior to MIT, she studied and worked in UK, Switzerland, India and Singapore. Architect and researcher by profession, writer and photographer by passion, she considers herself forever a student at heart. Creativity, technology and culture are her favorite subjects and she aspires to connect them through her research. Her current work focusses on building machines capable of being creative partners for human designers.
