Join Danil Nagy for an in-depth discussion in this video Design optimization, part of Generative Design Foundations.
- After we've told the computer … how to evaluate each solution in our generative model, … now we can use optimization algorithms … to automatically explore different options … and find the best solutions. … Like many technologies involved with generative design, … optimization is not a new idea. … The field of optimization has been around … even before computers and has been used … to drive efficiency in many industries, … such as manufacturing and logistics. … However, traditional optimization approaches … tended to be very specific … to the problems they were trying to solve. … For example, over many years, … a variety of specialized algorithms were developed … to solve the so-called traveling salesman problem … where you try to find the shortest route … between a set of cities. … In the field of optimization, … these specialized approaches are often called heuristics. … In addition to being highly specialized, … most early optimization approaches were purely mathematical, … meaning that the problem had to be defined …
