 genetic algorithms for image generation? Juraj Borza9-Oct-07 9:56 Juraj Borza 9-Oct-07 9:56
 Hello, I have considered doing following project: Imagine that you have simple graphics (like some schematics, logo, etc). I'd like to investigate some other approaches to saving the image like traditional bitmap/vector files. It would use some kind of advanced algorithms to generate set of graphical operations (draw line/shape/curve, fill shape, draw text somewhere) that would be drawn to some bitmap. The program would then evaluate how much the generated image look like the original (like fitness function in GA), I mean, evaluate many solutions, find the best ones, combine/mutate them in some way to produce better results in the next generation. It would not be saving the image in the true sense of word, it would be more like finding algorithm on how to recreate it with the best precision using elementary graphical operations. Maybe it would be useless, maybe not. My question is, *how* should I start? I read something on the topic of genetic algorithms, but most of the articles dealt with using binary string (genes) for representing the operations (but wouldn't it be too long to encode many (tens, hundreds) graphical operations with parameters?) I mean, if we had about hundred operations (8-bit identifier) with average of four 16-bit parameters, it would be about 100*8+100*4*16=7200 bits of information to combine, mutate and eventually, evaluate. I know it will be painfully slow, to have some kind of fitness evaluation function that would need to draw image from the "genes", but this would be a research project. I am just wondering if something like this is possible (I think it could be), and if yes, someone could please point me in the right direction to start. thanks, Juraj
