Reviews

'What a wonderful, brilliant, joyous read! Marcus makes it seem so easy, and such fun, to begin to understand that which appears complex, frightening and beautiful, and the magic of being human' Philippe Sands

'The Creativity Code is only partly a book about AI art. It is as much about how AI thinks and how it does mathematics - du Sautoy's own special subject. And on these topics, he is thoughtful and illuminating' The Times

'Du Sautoy is [...] the light-bearer, illuminating not only the work of coders and creators, but the mathematics of chaos that underpin art and our emotional responses to it' Hans Ulrich Obrist

'Why could a machine one day not create a truly original work of art, write a moving poem, compose an opera or even discover a mathematical theorem? The answers, in this compelling and thought-provoking book by mathematician and musician, Marcus du Sautoy, can be found by breaking down what it actually means to be creative' Jim Al-Khalili

'Fact-packed and funny, questioning what we mean by creative and unsettling the script about what it means to be human, The Creativity Code is a brilliant travel guide to the coming world of AI' Jeanette Winterson

'Fascinating book ... if all the experiences, hopes, dreams, visions, lusts, loves and hatreds that shape the human imagination amount to nothing more than a "code", then sooner or later a machine will crack it. Indeed, Du Sautoy assembles an eclectic array of evidence to show how that's happening even now' The Times

'Absorbing study ... eloquent and illuminating' Nature Magazine
