The CraftBook website explores science fiction and related topics. For generations people have written books, produced movies and created art and craft items that depict the future. Advances in science and technology that have taken place during recent years have made many features of those imagined worlds a reality. As the rate of change accelerates, we are likely to find ourselves living within a world that increasingly resembles some of those works of science fiction.

Creative Intelligence

People have long voiced concerns about machines replacing them in jobs that involve routine tasks, but until recently it was believed that work requiring creative skills would remain the preserve of human beings. However, knowledge and creative workers now fear that artificial intelligence might impact their ability to earn a living. There have also been calls for regulations to protect the rights of people whose creative work is used to train generative AI.

Creative Intelligence explores the creative thinking process and might help you to develop your own creative skills.

Artificial intelligence has often played a role in science fiction stories and AI is already outperforming human beings across a range of repetitive or purely analytical tasks. While some people believe AI will become sentient and outperform human beings in creative work, others consider such capabilities to be beyond anything that machines will be able to achieve.

In this book I explore the nature of creativity, how human beings can develop their creative skills and the possible impact of technology upon how we live and work. It is a short book, which could be read within an hour, but it might help you to develop a creative process that you could apply within your own life.

Creative Thinking Skills

Creativity has been described as a spark or moment of sudden insight or realisation. Some consider creativity to be a rare gift, possessed by a talented few, but we can each benefit from developing our own creative thinking skills.

Becoming more creative could benefit people involved in activities ranging from arts and crafts to science, technology and business. However, the demands of daily life can make it difficult to find the time and space that are conducive to entering into a creative state of mind. Some people who have been told that they are not creative might also fail to recognise the creative potential within themselves and the opportunities for personal growth that could bring them.

The landscape of our mind is formed from experiences, memories and the perception we have of ourselves, other people and the world around us. We can fill our mind with information and experiences that will enrich our inner world, expand our imagination and inspire work that could resonate with others. Download Creative Intelligence.
