title Information Amount Measurement in Generative Systems:An Objective Approach to Termination
source Timmermans, Harry (Ed.), Sixth Design and Decision Support Systems in Architecture and Urban Planning - Part one: Architecture Proceedings Avegoor, the Netherlands), 2002
summary Termination in computational generative systems is linked increasingly to user intervention: the generative system concludes when the user chooses it to do so. The similarities between this approach to termination and the creative artistic process suggest that the products of generative systems are amenable to analysis in terms of well-formedness leading to a formal measure that acts as an automatic termination trigger. The paper proposes that such a measure can be derived from structural information theory. By applying the compression of structural information theory to meaningful principles of a design world we derive a consistent, universal description of the design result at any given state. This description expresses the correlation of the design with its formal constraints, as well as the general perception of the design’s patterns.
