A strategy how to make computational creativity system outputs much better: 
Give bots the ability to spend real-world money.

- Generative Music Bot? Let it buy new samples.
- Generative Design Bot? Let it buy new fonts.
- Generative Journalist Bot? Let it hire mechanical turkers.

While this strategy might seems like a "hack" from a "pure", academic computational creativity perspective - it is precisely such hacks that will make generative system outputs become "good enough" across many creative disciplines in the near term.
