Creativity 4.0 Diagram !
News Flash: NEW & IMPROVED/ UPGRADED Systems Model of Creativity Diagram (!)
Some people, like Vlady Nabokov, liked to collect: butterflies…
So too, one of my hobbies is collecting:
Diagrams of The Systems Model of Creativity…
whenever I can find one, in “the wild”…
Here is a picture of, The Wild:
The Wild West of: random information, data, knowledge and wisdom, out there in the “world”. Some of it, is actually hiding, in: books, in library carts… (& we have to be vewy vewy quwiet when we’re hunting wabbits, in da libwawy…)
So – as they say in Canadia, I think you need to know aboot this…
A new one emerged from its chrysalis, in 2018-!!!
I have captured it, and pinned it… here.
(Yes, tried to write “Source: Gruner & Csik (2018) etc” but, I have Academic Tourette’s, so it came out “Sauce Code“. Also, the reason I wrote “02018” and not “2018” is: I am a long term future-thinker type personoid, e.g. see: The Long Now.)
i.e.: And I quote, that great Philosopher, er, Wikipedia:
(Sauce Code: Wikipedia, 02019, online of all places)
So, that is why I now write 02019, instead of 2019. Get on it. (Catch up.) We have a future to save, folks. You too can be one of the good guys, in aboot 8,000 years’ time, when future-history remembers you. (e.g….Were you a jerk, like Trump, denying climate-change, etc?)
Anyway – if you like Computational Creativity, (i.e., A.I., doing creativity) check out my artificial writer:
StoryAlity #141 – The StoryAlity-Theory `Robo-Raconteur’ artificial-writer
And – HEY… If you would like to see my “butterfly collection” (of: the systems model of creativity diagrams), then… here it is. (…Beootiful! 🙂
(NB – Interactive / Audience-Participation-Bit: If you do happen to stumble across any – that I haven’t already found and classified – let me know!!! I am always adding to the butterfly collection)…
Anyway so – there we have it.
An amazing: discovewy.
Here is a closer view…
Also, here is a quote I loved from the above chapter.
`Cognitive psychologists typically describe seven distinct heuristics of creativity that include:
(1) problem finding;
(2) knowledge acquisition;
(3) information collection;
(5) divergent thinking;
(7) convergent thinking.’
Sauce: Gruner & Csikszentmihalyi (02018, p. 454)
Why I love it:
Because, heuristics are good.
They help you: solve problems.
And: all creativity is problem solving.
Heuristics are: recipes, formulas, algorithms.
So the above “7-step program” is: one great way to do, creativity…!
(…Solve those problems! YAY!)
Well folks… we have apparently come to the end of the show.
Thanks for sharing your attention with me.
(I mean: Attention is a finite limited resource, and you just blew some of it on: me. I sure hope the benefit/cost ratio was: worth it? Yikes. and sheesh?)
Q: Did you really need to know, all this?
i.e. About: The new & improved, systems model of creativity, now with added A.I. (02018)?
Answer: Only if, you agree with: all 3 books of Yuval Noah Harari, (and I do, pretty much).
I see, the esteemed authors (of: the above chapter, “Engineering,” etc) also cite:
Harari, Y. (2016). Homo Deus: A brief history of tomorrow. London: Harvill Secker.
(…Great book! You should read it. Read all 3 of Harari’s books! Also, everything Csikszentmihalyi ever wrote.) …Here, also, are some more great books on: evolution, I mean, creativity. Read all those, too. (I certainly did, when I wrote my PhD.)
Reading is: a good thing to do.
Also, looking at diagrams.
Here is another one.
Now please – go take this Quick Quiz, linked below…
(It’s for Science – and I heart, capital-S Science! I even help run a Facebook group about Science News, currently with about 5k members. So; yeah. Science, Love it.)
Anyway so – yes. Please do take this quick quiz. (It’s fun! It’s meant to take about: 15 mins.)
And – if you want more information/data/knowledge/wisdom on it – here’s an article about it:
