    Abstract

    In this paper we introduce and reflect on current research questions regarding computers and creativity. Creativity is an enigmatic yet widely discussed phenomena. With the now widespread adoption of computers and information technologies, the nature of creativity and how we think about it has changed significantly. We argue for a shift in thinking about computers from tools to creative agents and collaborative partners. We present 21 questions we think are crucial to understanding this new relationship and begin to offer answers, or pathways to answers for a selective subset.
