Abstract

We introduce two descriptive models for evaluating creative software; the FACE model, which describes creative acts performed by software in terms of tuples of generative acts, and the IDEA model, which describes how such creative acts can have an impact upon an audience. We show how these models have been inspired both by ideas in the psychology of creativity and by an analysis of acts of human creativity.
