A Simulated Brain Model for Products' Creative Design
Based on cognition psychology, information technology, artificial intelligence, and knowledge mining based on database over Internet, etc. the paper build a simulated brain model to aid creative design. The core of brain model is a three lever memory structure of knowledge layer, conception layer and signal layer and some responding control mechanism to use the knowledge saved in memory. Now, we had built a prototype model and some preliminary results have been applied in a computer aided industrial design system. Simulating brain to manage, organize and apply design knowledge, it is not only a road to systematically transplant design knowledge to software, but also an exploration to building brain-style information system.
