– Emergent properties: Endemes are a way of tightly managing emergent properties. each endeme can be thought of as a combination of characteristics at the top of the string. Generaly either 3 4 or 7 characteristics are combined to
create an emergent property.
– AC principles: coverage, difference and balance: When you are doing Artificial Creativity you want to structure your data so that if it is randomly generated, it makes sense and presents a legitimate creation. The characteristics are chosen so that the possible combinations are significantly different from each other, all possible combinations cover that possibilities outcomes you might be interested in and the possibility spaces are balanced.
– Combinatoric Abstraction is AC: When you build an endeme set you are actually doing artificial creativity because you are looking to see how to make multiple things that will combine to create new things
