Abstract: Re-representation and restructuring are processes relevant to creativity research. These are related to "seeing as", defined as the ability to represent features as different meaningful objects, and select and group objects as relevant structures for the problem at hand. Creative problem-solving, insight and the three types of creativity proposed by Boden are explored from the perspective of these terms. A set of essential questions to be answered by the cognitive systems discipline from the perspective of re-representational ability is put forward. Some of the implications of enabling re-representation and evaluating systems based on re-representation are then explored.
Keywords: computational creativity, creative problem-solving, human creativity, insight, Re-representation, transformational creativity
