Evolver is an interactive evolutionary art tool that helps designers create new designs. The designer provides a seed image that the system then uses to generate a selection of new images. The designer chooses what images they prefer while also setting constraints such as colour scheme, and Evolver uses that information to evolve a new set of images.
‘Evolver incorporates a user-friendly GUI paired with a flexible internal image representation format for ease of use by the designer. The designer provides the seed material and selects preferred results while the system generates a population of artwork candidates, cross breeds and mutates the candidates under user control to generate new design products.’
