Evolutionary computation (EC) techniques, including genetic algorithm, evolution strategies, genetic programming, particle swarm optimisation, ant colony optimisation, differential evolution and memetic algorithms, have shown to be effective for search and optimisation problems. Recently, EC gained several promising results and becomes an important tool in computational creativity, such as in music, visual art, literature, architecture, and industrial design.
