They can navigate more data than a doctor or lawyer and act with greater precision. For many years we've taken solace in the notion that they can't create. But now that algorithms can learn and adapt, does the future of creativity belong to machines too?

    As a species, we have an extraordinary ability to create works of art that elevate, expand and transform what it means to be human.

The music of Wagner or Schubert takes us on an emotional roller-coaster ride as we give ourselves up to their sublime sounds. These are the expressions of what Marcus du Sautoy calls ‘the creativity code’.
