AI is still only at the quite creative stage of development.
Hassabis breaks creativity down into three buckets: interpolation, extrapolation and invention. Interpolation is about identifying a new thing within an existing range of similar things. In a game of chess, for example, an average player would typically interpolate his or her next move. That move builds on the experience of past games played. The operative word here is within. Extrapolation is about identifying a new thing beyond an existing range of similar things. Hassabis placed coming up with a brand new move in Go in this category. An example would be AlphaGo’s move 37 against the Go world champion in 2017. Finally, he suggested that invention could be likened to inventing Go. He noted that AI was still a long way from being able to achieve this third level of creativity, although this is where the cutting edge of AI research is now.
