We propose the application of techniques from the field of creativity research to machine learned models. The techniques in question are combinatorial creativity techniques, defined as techniques that combine two sets of input to create novel output sets. In this way combinatorial machine learning creativity can produce new ML models without any training data. We present combinatorial machine learning creativity applied in the domain of video games and propose future applications in other domains.
