Creative Sailboat Design

J. Park

Creativity in the design process is explored by means of a sailboat design exercise. A rule-based design system is controlled by a directed evolution algorithm such that the design space for sailboats is computationally explored. Directed evolution provides heuristic guidance for a genetic-like approach to mutation of design rules. This mutation may result in improvements to the design rules. Some results from an early trial of the system are discussed.
