Mosaic Generation 8:55am, Saturday, May 1, GMS 1097
What do you get when you mix biological evolution, software, and images? My project! Its goal is to take an image, mess it up, and let a genetic algorithm figure out how to get it as close as possible to the initial image. The possibilities are endless. With this type of thinking, you could feed the computer many different pictures and have them put together in such a way that the final image looks like whatever you'd like!

Image Reconstruction with Polygons 10:25am, Saturday, May 1, GMS 1097
This application uses a genetic algorithm to model a population of individuals, each containing a list of genes (polygons) which can be visualized as an image. Starting with a population consisting of a randomly generated gene pool, each individual is compared to the original image to calculate its fitness. By breeding fitter individuals from the population, the gene list which produces the most accurate representation of the original image is selected over successive generations, demonstrating the power of a natural selection process to produce the best candidate.

Cartoon-like Images from Pictures 1:15pm, Saturday, May 1, GMS 1097
In our digitized world, there is an increasing need for image rendering. The purpose of this project was to create an application that converts pictures into an image that resembles a simple cartoon. User control over the colors was important requirement, so a bucket sorting algorithm in conjunction with K-means was implemented to allow the user to choose the number of colors and the colors themselves. Other user input like choice of blurring effects and intensity or bucket range control will allow for some abstract images to be created.
