NEvAr – System Overview
In the past few years, a new Artificial Intelligence area has begun to emerge, usually named Creative Reasoning. While some researchers approach the study of creativity from a human perspective, and thus try to model human creativity, we follow a different approach: we consider nature to be creative, and hence try to it in an attempt to create systems that have the potential to be creative. In this paper we make an overview of the evolutionary art tool NEvAr – a system that allows the evolution of populations of images.
