A Formal Model of Mixed-Initiative Interaction in Design Exploration
MetadataShow full item record
Computer-based environments for supporting design are complex software artifacts. These tools need to use sound computational formalisms as well as address issues of human usability. The development of interactive and usable generative systems is a significant reasearch area in design computation. Though classical search techniques play a central role in the generative kernels of these 'closed-worlds' systems, the open-ended exploration of design spaces is the desirable goal. In this paper, we present a formal model of exploration that combines search with user driven exploration. We describe the role of interaction and agency in an experimental mixed-initiative design support system.
