The video presentation will show some of the "classic" work and new work in the field. We will overview the various techniques employed to achieve such aesthetically pleasing results.
The Problem of providing criteria for the aesthetic evaluation of forms generated with an evolutionary system will be discussed. The validity of the method of interactive selection will be discussed as well as alternative approaches to the problem of automatic evaluation of artworks using evolutionary techniques.
Emphasis will be given to the use of GP for the problem of writing programs that mimic given works of given artists and the process and images they generate.
All are welcome. Please pass on this information to any members of staff, postgraduates and others in your department who might be interested in attending.
