It is well known that for any sort of evolutionary search we must represent the problem solution in a suitable manner since the choice of representation has a large impact on the type and efficiency of the evolutionary search procedure applied. Usually in evolutionary design applications either bit strings or real number parameters are used to encode the(More)

The paper describes further research relating to an Interactive Evolutionary Design system (IEDS) with emphasis upon extending it to support free-form design. A generative feedback loop is also introduced which, when using a component based representation, extracts user preferences regarding the various components at run-time. This information is fed back(More)
The overall research focuses on the development of an Interactive Evolutionary Design System (IEDS) [Parmee 2002] which integrates machine-based evaluation of engineering criteria and rulebased aesthetic criteria with the designer’s subjective aesthetic evaluation of design solutions. The research described in the paper relates to user-centric intelligent(More)
This paper reviews the development of an interactive evolutionary design system (IEDS) for conceptual design, which integrates an agent based "build and evolve" approach with a component based representation. It builds upon the previous work done by the authors involving interactive design of bench-like structures and describes the extension of the system(More)
