Human health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing; not merely absence of disease or infirmity. Longstanding research in the psychology of wellbeing lists mastery, relatedness, and autonomy as the three innate psychological needs that must be fulfilled. Group creativity, when carefully designed and coordinated, is a unique activity that fulfills all three simultaneously, boosting not only global wellbeing but also cultural and economic wealth of diverse communities. However, group creativity is difficult and can thwart competence if not done properly: individual creative contributions are fundamentally complex and co-dependent; their combination requires more intelligence than simple summation or independent voting. We propose a vision to advance AI-aided social co-creation platforms that boost interactive and effective human-human and human-AI collaborations in creating music, which can then expand to other creative and productive domains. Current videoconferencing, distance learning, and social networking helped maintain connection in these pandemic years, but are insufficient for people to collaboratively create. We leverage a new human-interpretable learning paradigm-information lattice learning-together with equity-centered design principles, to build AI-aided platforms that integrate disparate groups of people, their ideas, and expertise into high-quality creative outputs while preserving autonomy of individual human contributors and supporting anti-racist teaching efforts.
