Algorithms which Automate Creativity

In the Journal of Genetic Progamming and Evolvable Machines, a paper entitled Incorporating characteristics of human creativity into an evolutionary art algorithm examines computer-generated art and design software which uses an evolutionary approach. This software usually relies on human intervention to select the 'best' of two variants and determine the makeup of the next generation. The paper's authors, Steve DiPaola and Liane Gabora, discuss ways in which the software can incorporate this human intervention into its algorithms, automating one more step of human creativity.
