Artificial Invention

I changed the name of the "Artificial Creativity" category on this blog to "Artificial Invention." Invention doesn't always involve "creativity," and I wanted the name of the category to reflect this. Sometimes invention results from serendipity, brute force trial-and-error, or following design rules. The path leading to an invention may involve some combination of these and other features. So "artificial invention" it is.
