UKAIS & Digit event: The changing nature of creativity in the era of GenAI

3 July 2024

Digit is co-hosting an online event with UKAIS to invite contributions to a special issue on ‘The Changing Nature of Creativity in the Era of GenAI’ for Information Systems Frontiers on Thursday 12 September.

The special issue will be guest edited by Digit Associate Fellow Petros Chamakiotis (ESCP Business School), Niki Panteli (Lancaster University), Stephen Jackson (Ontario Tech University), and Emmanouil Koukoumidis (Learning Machines AI).

The editors will attend the online meeting on 12 September alongside Digit’s Dimitra Petrakaki, who will introduce proceedings.

The session will introduce the call for the Special Issue and what is expected from submitted papers. It will also afford the opportunity for attendees to ask the editors questions, as well as to find out more about a paper developmental workshop that is scheduled for November.

The meeting will take place on Zoom from 2pm to 3pm (BST). Visit the UKAIS website for more information, including the Zoom link.

About the Special Issue: ‘The changing nature of creativity in the era of GenAI’

Despite the rich and cross-disciplinary literature on creativity at the individual, team, and organisational level, the emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and more recently, Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) puts into question the relevance of existing knowledge in this area.

Contrary to traditional AI, GenAI has the ability to produce novel content, including audio, images, text, and videos.

This proposed Special Issue (SI) seeks to build on an emerging interest with implications both within and beyond the Information Systems (IS) community by exploring how these recent developments, especially around GenAI, influence creativity in organisations.

Is GenAI a threat to human and organisational creativity? Does GenAI ‘compete’ with humans, or could it complement human creativity? What is the role of organisations and managers in this era?

These are only some of the questions we aim to shed light on with our SI in our effort to develop new understandings around creativity and GenAI.
