This paper describes ‘generate and situated transformation’ as a paradigm for models of computational creativity that can lead to novel questions and methods of enquiry. It describes the need for systems that can move towards a frame within which a design solution can be found. The term situated transformation is defined, with reference to Boden’s notion of transformation and ideas from situated cognition, as a change of frame that is based upon experience. The paper then provides a demonstration of simple systems with generate and situated transformation that embody this idea. It then elaborates upon these models showing parallels within established systems in the literature. The paper concludes with a discussion of research questions and avenues of enquiry that are apparent within this paradigm.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
