Recent advancements in generative artificial intelligence (AI) have showcased its potential in a wide range of creative activities such as producing works of art, composing symphonies, and even drafting legal texts, slide presentations, or the like.

These developments have raised concerns that AI will outperform humans in creativity tasks and make knowledge workers redundant. These comments are most recently underlined by a Fortune article entitled "Elon Musk says AI will create a future where 'no job is needed': The AI will be able to do everything."

In a new paper in a Nature Human Behavior special issue on AI, researcher Janet Rafner from Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies and Center for Hybrid Intelligence at Aarhus University and Prof. Jacob Sherson, Director of the Center for Hybrid Intelligence, together with international collaborators discuss research and societal implications of creativity and AI.

The team of researchers argues that we should direct our attention to understanding and nurturing co-creativity, the interaction between humans and machines towards what is termed a "-centered AI" and "hybrid intelligence." In this way, we will be able to develop interfaces that, at the same time, ensure both high degrees of automatization through AI and human control and hereby support a relationship that optimally empowers each other.
