The same DSNS approach was then used; refer to Chap. 3, Sect. 3 for information about merging deviations from different domains. The attributes used for the paintings, photographs and abstract art pieces are as follows. As with the chess domain they represent unique features that a human observer might notice or be able to find out. Similarly they are arbitrary but should be obtainable by some means and describable using real numbers. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. e. e. width divided by height) Brightness Contrast Noisiness Lightness File size (in bits) We specify the gender of the selector here in case it is ever found to have influenced the results.

Fig. 5 Assumptions and Implications 19 It is therefore implied that raw data ‘extracted’ from an object—even from different domains—can be integrated such that new objects of creative value from either of the original domains, can be generated. This is comparable to how a human being perceives, say, a painting, which is likely represented in memory as a neuro-chemical substance or reaction in the brain, and then a piece of music, which is also represented in the ‘similar format’ neuro-chemical substance or reaction in the brain (analogous to the DSNS strings) so that they can be integrated (analogous to the deviation value) to produce either a new painting or new piece of music (analogous to the building specifications supplied by the new DSNS strings).

For TG1500p (300 games, 300 photos, 10 attributes) against TG1500p (300 games, 300 photos, 5 attributes), the difference between the mean aesthetics scores based on a TTUV test was not statistically significant. This suggests that, given these two source domains, using more attributes makes no difference. 7), in that an increase in the number of attributes used does not make a difference, regardless of the inclusion of photos as a source. There were no differences of statistical significance between the average number of variations based on a TTUV test.
