The use of evolution for creative problem solving is one of the most exciting and potentially significant areas in computer science today. Evolutionary computation is a way of solving problems, or generating designs, using mechanisms derived from natural evolution. This book concentrates on applying important ideas in evolutionary computation to creative areas, such as art, music, architecture, and design. It shows how human interaction, new representations, and approaches such as open-ended evolution can extend the capabilities of evolutionary computation from optimization of existing solutions to innovation and the generation of entirely new and original solutions.
This book takes a fresh look at creativity, exploring what it is and how the actions of evolution can resemble it. Examples of novel evolved solutions are presented in a variety of creative disciplines. The editors have compiled contributions by leading researchers in each discipline.
If you are a savvy and curious computing professional, a computer-literate artist, musician or designer, or a specialist in evolutionary computation and its applications, you will find this a fascinating survey of the most interesting work being done in the area today.

Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach
To ensure that readers fully understand the topic and its
applications, the authors provide motivating examples throughout. AI in
Practice boxes appear in each chapter, demonstrating real-world uses of
artificial intelligence by NASA, General Motors Corporation, Microsoft
Corporation, and other companies. LISP Implementation appendices are
found at the end of most chapters, providing fully-documented
implementations of important algorithms (also available in Scheme and
C++ implementations via ftp). These are carefully coordinated with the
discussions in the chapters making it easy for students to complete
computational experiments. Plus, the text features summaries, exercises,
and background sections describing related work at the end of each
