Abstract

In recent years, the employment of artificial intelligent techniques for supporting activities traditionally performed by humans and considered as creative has increasingly spread. In this paper, we present a novel artificial intelligence system, called Minerva, devoted to support one of such activities: the composition of museums. We illustrate both the technical features and the philosophical implications triggered out by the adoption of a system like Minerva.
