University of Cincinnati complex systems scientist Ali Minai says, "A core concern of our research is the desire to 'catch creativity in the act.'" Minai and a team of researchers funded by the National Science Foundation are attempting to develop computer programming that will identify the highly personal subject of creativity by types, kinds and categories. If successful, the project could be used to mine the Internet and social media for sparks of creativity.
