A novel agent-based, evolutionary model for expressing the dynamics of creative open-problem solving in small groups

Alex Doboli, Simona Doboli
2020 Applied intelligence (Boston)  
This paper presents a novel theoretical model (TM) that describes the process of solving open-ended problems in small groups.  ...  Understanding the process of producing creative responses to open-ended problems solved in small groups is important for many modern domains, like health care, manufacturing, education, banking, and investment  ...  Conclusions This paper proposes a novel theoretical model (TM) to describe the problem solving process of open-ended problems in small groups.  ...

Open Problems in Evolutionary Music and Art [chapter]

Jon McCormack
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Each problem is explained and the impetus and background for it is described in the context of creative evolutionary systems.  ...  Five 'open problems' are defined and explained as broad principle areas of investigation for evolutionary music and art.  ...  The aim of this paper is to define a small set of 'open problems' in EMA.  ...

to solve problems in search and optimisation.  ...  Properties and processes from natural ecosystems are abstracted and applied to the design of creative systems, in a similar way that evolutionary computing methods use the metaphor of Darwinian evolution  ...  We are interested in developing general algorithms for creative discovery. These algorithms are based on dynamic evolutionary processes observed in biological ecosystems.  ...

Creative Ecosystems [chapter]

Jon McCormack
2012 Computers and Creativity  
Traditional evolutionary approaches to computer creativity focus on optimisation, that is they define some criteria that allows the ranking of individuals in a population in terms of their suitability  ...  The problem for creative applications is that creativity is rarely thought of as a single optimisation. For example, could you come up with an algorithm for ranking music or painting?  ...  The computer science adaptation of evolution, a field known as Evolutionary Computing (EC), selectively abstracts from the processes of biological evolution to solve problems in search, optimisation and  ...

The sociology of creativity: Part I: Theory: The social mechanisms of innovation and creative developments in selectivity environments

Tom R. Burns, Nora Machado, Ugo Corte
2015 Human Systems Management  
This first part of a three part article on the sociology of creativity has three purposes: (1) to develop the argument that key factors in creative activity are socially based and developed; hence, sociology  ...  Creativity is a universal activity, essential in an evolutionary perspective, to adaptation and sustainability.  ...  in the development of the work presented here.  ...

Reducing Efficiency of Connectivity-Splitting Attack on Newscast via Limited Gossip [chapter]

Jakub Muszyński, Sébastien Varrette, Pascal Bouvry
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present a coevolutionary model of public goods games in networks, growing by random attachment, from small founding populations of simple agents.  ...  The method is applied for identification and modeling problems, where, in order to obtain the fitness value of one individual, we need to compute a mathematical expression for different time events.  ...

Group Creativity in Interaction: Collaborative Referencing, Remembering, and Bridging

Johann W. Sarmiento, Gerry Stahl
2008 International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction  
Group creative activity is examined broadly, ranging from the microlevel coconstruction of novel resources for team problem solving to the evolutionary reuse of ideas and solution strategies across teams  ...  In our study of mathematics collaboration online, we observe collective creative work as manifested in a wide range of interactions extending from the microlevel coconstruction of novel resources for problem  ...

A survey of computer systems for expressive music performance

Alexis Kirke, Eduardo Reck Miranda
2009 ACM Computing Surveys  
We present a survey of research into automated and semiautomated computer systems for expressive performance of music.  ...  To highlight some of the possible future directions for new research, the review uses primary terms of reference based on four elements: testing status, expressive representation, polyphonic ability, and  ...  Most melodies will sound acceptable in some context or other. (4) Most of the systems deal with computer composition as a problem-solving task rather as a creative and meaningful process.  ...
