Informal Workshop Presentation

the participants of the following workshop.
It starts at 19:00 h, and entrance is free.


Emergent Content Creation Using Simple Genetic Algorithms
By Kim Cascone

The concept for this workshop was inspired by John Maeda’s "Human 
Powered Computer Experiment" (http://www.imrf.or.jp/HPCE.html). In this 
experiment Maeda recreated the internal operations of a simple computer 
using people to physically transport handwritten instructions and data 
to and from the CPU, RAM, FPU, etc. Participating in this type of 
experiment enables one to best learn abstract concepts using their body 
as a medium.

In similar spirit, this workshop develops a group workflow using the 
model of a simple genetic algorithm (SGA) with the end result being an 
emergent work of music/sound art.
