Visual and Interactive Evolutionary Systems

Different approaches have been used to visualise the results of the EC search, and to make the EC process more interactive and user friendly. Lately research, discussed in this section, has been extended to allow users to interact with the evolutionary system to direct search in order to explore regions that are potentially more interesting.

The aim of this section is to discuss and review both the involvement of visualisation techniques for GA search, and the categories of interactive GA systems. Finally the major attributes of a visual interactive GA are discussed, and how such systems play a role in human led design.
