Dr. Shama Rahman


Enhancing Human Creativity Using Artificial Intelligence 

We speak a good deal on AI and creativity, most frequently around AI being creative; what about enhancing human creativity using AI?  Our speaker – Dr Shama Rahman – will give us insight into the neuroscience of creativity and demonstrate how AI can be used as a tool to spark human creativity. She will explore the potential of the complementary symbiosis of neuroscientific-knowledge and AI-capabilities to result in neuro-enhancement and ‘augmented creative intelligence’; we can all benefit from this approach.

Expounding on the stages within an innovation framework, different types of creativity, and the underlying neuroscience of the creative process, Shama will explore the capacity of AI as a symbiotic tool to augment the human creative process. The participants in this event can expect to embark on an AI-assisted creative session themselves using the ‘FlowCreate™ Innovator’ which enhances creative processes combining AI, neuroscience, and digitised design-thinking tools and innovation frameworks: everyone attending will get a link to a trial version of the FlowCreate™ Innovator platform
