!!!Scenario

Your CEO does not wish to bring in external domain experts at this stage because this is a rather novel idea. (You also suspect that she might not wish to tip off the competition as to what you are working on.)

So instead the company hired this consultant who gave you a long-distance presentation (via satellite) on the technology capabilities (the DVD we watched in class). Also, you got access to a preprint of a scientific paper that will be published in six months (the paper you read). Of course, you have all signed non-disclosure agreements, which means you should NOT talk to anyone else.

Your CEO wants '''you''' to decide what the best target audience might be... Think of your work as a proposal aiming to maximize the company's future influence/profits. What is the best audience for this application/technology? How to best target it/package it?

Artists? Children? People with learning disabilities? People with locked-in syndrome?

Realize that you do NOT have to make all of the technology visible (i.e., technology for technology's sake). The conceptual model (which you are NOT required to fully specify now) should fit the target population. Think ahead...

Given these constraints, you should probably explore similar applications out there, i.e., programs that combine evolutionary computation (genetic algorithms, genetic programming), with visual art or music, etc. What are their target audiences? (Google is your friend.)

Add these references at the bottom of your report. These will come in handy during the next phase, i.e., paper prototyping.
