Our expert voices conversation about computers and creativity.

Any creative solution is built upon at least one new or commonly overlooked or obscure feature of the problem. Datasets for machine learning generally contain the commonly noticed features of things. Access to obscure features is limited. The collection of a thing's obscure features has been proven to be beyond the ability of any computer or human to list out, deduce, or explore in its entirety. So, both computer and human creativity have a limitation.

Better together: Given that humans and computers have different creativity blind spots, they should work together to uncover as many obscure features as possible. Human blind spots have been well-studied and algorithms have been devised to help counteract them. Humans can help counteract the newly proven computer limitations. Together, humans and computers can achieve a state of super-creativity that neither partner can reach alone but they need an interface to record the creative steps of each partner.

Bottom line: Computers cannot completely take over creativity and innovation so many human jobs will remain intact but will be altered.

This is one of the bigger signs of trouble for President Trump that we've seen in a poll: Of the final debate's seven topics, Joe Biden won or tied on all seven when viewers in a massive Axios-SurveyMonkey sample were asked who they trusted more to handle the issue.

Why it matters: In a time of unprecedented colliding crises for the nation, the polling considered Biden to be vastly more competent.
