The Metamakers Institute undertakes computational creativity research with the aim of stimulating economic development by making software a creative collaborator.
The programme demonstrates the creative potential of software, with software systems that are built initially for experimental research, but can be commercialised. The programme aims to stimulate economic development through research, public engagement and commercialisation activities.
Core research questions include:
- How can software become more creative and responsive?
- Can humans and computers work together creatively?
- How can computational creativity enable wider participation with digital creativity?
- How can computational creativity aid rapid prototyping?

The Logic of Imaginary Scenarios
In this work, we review some influential theories of imagination and use their insights to distill an algorithm describing such process. Then, we use this algorithm to define a dynamic logical system built upon on a single-agent epistemic logic that provides the necessary tools to capture how the agent voluntarily creates new imaginary worlds.
