My view is inevitably a personal one, as for the time being, the answers to the tough questions on AI entail working with beliefs more so than with facts, opinions more so than hard evidence. What matters most in 'AI Creativity' is how we define creativity, as this definition will determine whether we can consider AI to be creative, now or in the future. It is also important to explore what kind of impact AI has or may have on human creativity.
