Neuro-Symbolic Generative Art: A Preliminary Study

International Conference on Computational Creativity (ICCC)


Abstract

There are two classes of generative art approaches: neural, where a deep model is trained to generate samples from a data distribution, and “symbolic” or algorithmic, where an artist designs the primary parameters and an autonomous system generates samples within these constraints. In this work, we propose a new hybrid genre: neuro-symbolic generative art. As a preliminary study, we train a generative deep neural network on samples from the symbolic approach. We demonstrate through human studies that subjects find the final artifacts and the creation process using our neurosymbolic approach to be more creative than the symbolic approach 61% and 82% of the time respectively.
