Kandid is a system to evolve graphics. Graphics, in Kandid, are not drawn by hand. Instead, new forms can be found using genetic algorithms. To achieve this aim Kandid simulates evolution using sexual reproduction and mutation. But there is no fitness function inside the program. Only the user can decide what images are interesting. Populations and genes can be stored in XML format. Image calculation is based on Lisp-like expressions, Lindenmayer Systems, Iterated Function Systems, Linear Cellular Automata, Voroni diagrams, and layered textures or isosurfaces rendered by the Persistence of Vision raytracer.
Grammidity is a Java based framework for evolutionary programming based on grammars. It can be used to evolve solutions to problems, or to evolve "objects" under user control. It has a limitless range of possible applications. This program has been tested on sample projects generating 3D objects and imitation plants.
