Extravagaria III: Hunting Creativity
Royal Palm 2
Sunday, 8:30, full day

Artists and scientists both search for understanding. Their methods and approaches differ, their results are in different languages, but there is no a priori reason to grant primacy to either. Art seems predicated on creativity while science and engineering are thought less so. The question arises what creativity is and whether creativity in the sciences and engineering - and especially in our software field - is the same as in art. This workshop explores that and related questions.
