Abstract

The invention of fictional ideas (ideation) is often a central process in producing artefacts such as poems, music and paintings in a creative way. Automated fictional ideation should, therefore, be of much interest in the study of Computational Creativity, but only a few approaches have been explored. We describe here the preliminary results of a new method for automated generation and evaluation of fictional ideas which uses ConceptNet, a semantic network. We evaluate the results obtained through a small study that involves participants scoring ideas via an online survey. We believe this approach constitutes a firm basis on which a more sophisticated model for automated creative ideation can be built.
