Abstract
Evolutionary Computation techniques have been applied to several fields in the Arts in recent years. This talk overviews how they have been used to create different types of artifacts, and how past developments relate to current approaches, trends and challenges. The focus is to address a main challenge in the field, fitness assignment, analyzing this from the perspective of the interplay between the evolutionary system and the user, and discussing how Machine Learning, Evolutionary Computation and HCI techniques can be combined to create Computer Aided Creativity systems that allow the users to express their artistic or aesthetic intentions.
