Human creativity has long been a mystery, and many scientists and artists have considered this mysterious process. Recently, in cognitive science, there have been studies trying to empirically investigate creativity, and research has been conducted in engineering and informatics to develop systems that support human cognition to facilitate the creative process in the mind. In our lab, we focus on the human idea generation process and consider how collaborative computer systems that trigger knowledge can promote better idea generation.
