# Emotional Glossary for CreativeAI This project attempts to **map the landscape of emotions** that we\* observe when we\* interact with **generative Machine Learning** systems in a **creative** manner. Particularly it looks at how these **emotions relate** to the **characteristic technical properties** (essential technical features, constitutive characteristics) of these systems: - a continuous space of possible outcomes (latent space) - a huge and (often unknown) training dataset - fast output/generation \*we = every person who uses these systems, be it in their artistic practice or for casual personal expression <iframe src="https://blocksurvey.io/survey/16rchbVayL7ckqKxcg86JpvB6oEsgY2MvG/06bfb48f-082c-4cf8-99c1-30fb6c20290c" style="width:100%; height:50vh;" frameborder="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0">Loading…</iframe> Attributes of the creative process (or: workflow), such as control, exploration, search, reward, etc. serve as the connection between the emotions and the technical system and interface. EMOTION <---> CREATIVE PROCESS/WORKFLOW <---> TECHNICAL SYSTEM/INTERFACE This glossary consists of **three types of entries**: - Emotions (e.g. "Surprise") - Other terms: Concepts related creative process (e.g. "Remix") or technical/ML terms (e.g. "Seed") - Entries by people with their individual observations (starting with the prefix "entry-") - they are either in the form of submissions to the [survey](https://blocksurvey.io/survey/16rchbVayL7ckqKxcg86JpvB6oEsgY2MvG/06bfb48f-082c-4cf8-99c1-30fb6c20290c/r/l) or cherry-picked quotes from the internet ___ Oh..! I like the direction in which it’s going… What the heck?! Ok…Looks interesting… I’m gonna kill this early and try with another (random) seed ___ <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Y9_tvh7spfo?clip=UgkxtM0vQTAc9UHItun8CgeJRn_LlkMX6xBh&amp;clipt=EKHN_gEYlJ6AAg" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> #emotion
