title Concept Formation in a Design Optimization Tool
source Van Leeuwen, J.P. and H.J.P. Timmermans (eds.) 2006, Innovations in Design & Decision Support Systems in Architecture and Urban Planning, Dordrecht: Springer, ISBN-10: 1-4020-5059-3, ISBN-13: 978-1-4020-5059-6, p. 293-308
summary This paper presents how a situated agent model can wrap around a design optimization tool and construct concepts from interaction between the agent, the design problem and the use of the tool. The agent develops its structure and behaviour specific to what it is confronted with - its experience. As a consequence, designers can integrate their expertise with the learning results from the agent to develop design solutions. We present preliminary results.
