          Abstract

          Mini-XEPA is an installation of about 16 systems that anticipates a future where machines form their own societies. The project is a second generation following the original XEPA project of a few years prior. These systems exhibit apparent artistic creativity by applying modest artificial intelligence to aesthetic challenges. The small mini-XEPA intelligent sculptures create animated light sequences and musical sound. No scripts, coordination information, or commands are used. Each mini-XEPA “watches” the others and modifies its own aesthetic behaviour to create a collaborative improvisational performance.

          First an overview of mini-XEPA is presented as to purpose, hardware, software, and algorithms for aesthetic evaluation and aesthetic group convergence. After that we drill down on a specific aspect of the mini-XEPA’s intelligent behaviour, the computational aesthetic evaluation of colour palettes.
