Abstract

There are some software tools for supporting idea generation, with which user can generate various ideas with stochastic process. One of the most popular examples is the method so called “algorithmic architecture,” which is mainly used by architects. In such a system, use of random number is an essential factor for generating ideas beyond users’ expectation. In this paper, the meaning of the use of randomness in design process is discussed to figure out essential aspects of the stochastic approach. Then, two different types of software idea generators are introduced. As the necessary consequence, the effective control of randomness with language for concept construction is discussed.
