I am absolutely delighted that finally, finally the acknowledgement
"creativity" as an important component of our future is being recognized in
more than one field.
Dr Stephen Thaler's approach is a milestone in achieving strides in AI,
however the article itself does make assumptions that are debatable.

It is my view that in the future, near and far, that "creativity" will be
understood and appreciated more than ever. This includes not only the
psychological ramifications of creativity, but also the practical
applications of creativity as being as vital in our thinking as intelligence
is. The "Creativity Augmentum" in the 21st Century, as I see it, will
certainly be worth investing in.
