Can machines be creative? Recent successes in AI have shown that machines can now perform at human levels in many tasks that, just a few years ago, were considered to be decades away, like driving cars, understanding spoken language, and recognizing objects.

Can machines be programmed to find solutions on their own, and perhaps even come up with creative solutions that humans would find difficult?
