Meta-level Evaluation and Transformational Creativity; An analysis of MEXICA

We present a proposal for meta-level evaluation in creative systems. In this paper, the Mexica creative system is the subject of our analysis. To achieve meta-level evaluation, we have constructed a program that interacts with Mexica's inputs and its outputs. The meta-level system evaluates the results and makes decisions based on them. For decision-making it includes heuristics that are defined in terms of Mexica's results; these are rules particular to the object- level system. We also include other general metrics that apply in any other creative system. For example, Ritchie's criteria for evaluating creative systems are included in this proposal.
