The European project CONCRETE ("Concept Creation Technologies") aims to 
study conceptual creativity in humans and machines hoping to achieve 
computationally-creative reasoning as the creation of new concepts. It 
will focus on mechanisms for generating examples from a learned model, 
and mechanisms for evaluating generated examples according to novelty 
and value.

In the frame of this project, the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (NIL 
research group) will undertake the following tasks: generating 
linguistic renderings of concepts created anew by project technologies, 
exploit newly created concepts to produce original machine-generated 
poetry, and exploit newly created concepts in support of task of 
automated summarization of text.

The position is for a full-time postdoctoral researcher with annual 
salary 42,800 euro. The positions are for one year, with the possibility 
of renewal for a further two years, starting from 27th January 2014.
