Abstract: Computational creativity is a blossoming field that can help us view computer science through an interdisciplinary lens. As we continue to perfect how we teach and conduct research in computational creativity, it is important to study how others perceive and describe the field and its researchers. If misconceptions or stereotypes exist, we must first identify their presence and root causes so to best address them. This talk serves as a first step in that regard by presenting initial findings of student perceptions of computational creativity.
