Workshop "Creativity in Mathematics and AI" (CMAI 2023)

Datum 18 Jan. 2023 - 20 Jan. 2023
Lokatie Maastricht

Considering current advances in mathematical formalisation and neural theorem proving, this workshop seeks to address the role of creativity in mathematical understanding and artificial intelligence.
In this workshop, we therefore bring together experts from the fields of mathematics, artificial intelligence, cognitive neuroscience and philosophy of mathematics to actively engage in deepening our knowledge of creativity in human and artificial mathematical reasoning.
In due time, we aim to publish the team answers to the research questions in post-proceedings of the workshop as a book or special issue of a journal. We offer an early bird fee for those registering before 1 November!
