Overview

"Evolutionary Design By Computers offers an enticing preview of the future of computer-aided design: Design by Darwin."
Lawrence J. Fogel, President, Natural Selection, Inc.

"Evolutionary design by computers is the major revolution in design thinking of the 20th century and this book is the best introduction available."
Professor John Frazer, Swire Chair and Head of School of Design, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Author of "An Evolutionary Architecture"

"Peter Bentley has assembled and edited an important collection of papers that demonstrate, convincingly, the utility of evolutionary computation for engineering solutions to complex problems in design."
David B. Fogel, Editor-in-Chief, IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation

Some of the most startling achievements in the use of computers to automate design are being accomplished by the use of evolutionary search algorithms to evolve designs.

Evolutionary Design By Computers provides a showcase of the best and most original work of the leading international experts in Evolutionary Computation, Engineering Design, Computer Art, and Artificial Life. By bringing together the highest achievers in these fields for the first time, including a foreword by Richard Dawkins, this book provides the definitive coverage of significant developments in Evolutionary Design.

This book explores related sub-areas of Evolutionary Design, including:

  • design optimization
  • creative design
  • the creation of art
  • artificial life.

It shows for the first time how techniques in each area overlap, and promotes the cross-fertilization of ideas and methods. A CD-ROM is included with the book, providing the reader with hands-on activities, evolved images, animations, and source-code related to the text. Evolutionary Design By Computers will be an essential resource for researchers in academia and industry.

"...explores all the related sub-areas of evolutionary design, including evolutionary computation for design optimization, creative design, creation of art, & creation of artificial life...CD-ROM provides programs & activities."

Meet the Author

Peter J. Bentley is a Honorary Research Fellow at University College London, known for his research covering all aspects of EC, including multiobjective optimization, constraint handling, artificial immune systems, computational embryology and more, and applied to diverse applications including floor-planning, control, fraud-detection, and music composition. He speaks regularly at international conferences, and is a consultant, convenor, chair and reviewer for workshops, conferences, journals and books on Evolutionary Design and Evolutionary Computation. He has been a guest editor of special issues on Evolutionary Design and Creative Evolutionary Systems in journals, and is the editor of the book Evolutionary Design by Computers (MKP) and is the author of the popular science book, Digital Biology, to publish in May 2001.
