The paper discusses how computers can assist human creativity. A support system has been built and applied to the domain of automobile design. The system uses multidimensional data and statistical methods, and configures a space for inspiring the users' design activity. In the first step, it assists them in forming individual design concepts. In the second step, it assists them in deciding their target design concepts. It has been confirmed that it works effectively through experiments. Some of the open questions on creativity support systems are also discussed. © 1994.
