This volume contains the proceedings of the 3rd International Workshop for "Computational
Creativity, Concept Invention, and General Intelligence" held in conjunction with ECAI 2014
in Prague, Czech Republic.

Continuing the tradition of the 1st edition of the workshop series in 2012 at ECAI in
Montpellier and the 2nd event in 2013 at IJCAI in Beijing, the aim of this workshop is to
bring together researchers from different fields of AI working on computational models for
creativity, concept formation, concept discovery, idea generation, and their overall relation
and role to general intelligence as well as researchers focusing on application areas, like
computer-aided innovation.

Although the different approaches to questions concerning the aforementioned aspects do
share significant overlap in underlying ideas, the cooperation between the respective
communities is still in an early stage, and can greatly profit from interaction and discussion
between people from the respective fields, forming trans- and interdisciplinary alliances in
research and application.

Together with a growing community of researchers in both, academia and industry, we are
convinced that it is time to revitalize the old AI dream of “Thinking Machines” which now
has been almost completely abandoned for decades. Fortunately, more and more
researchers presently recognize the necessity and feasibility of returning to the original
goal of creating systems with human-like intelligence. By continuing the discussions
started over the course of the last two years, we are hoping to consolidate the workshop
series in its role as an annual event gathering leading researchers in computational
creativity, general intelligence, and concept invention whose work is in direct connection to
our overall goal, providing and generating additional valuable support in further turning the
current spirit of optimism into a lasting research endeavor. In doing so we aim to establish
an additional venue for interdisciplinary exchange about topics at the intersection between
computational creativity research, aritificial intelligence, computational cognitive science,
psychology, and philosophy, supporting the rebirth of a multifaceted and exciting field of
