In this video, learn how to use visualization and data analysis tools to evaluate the optimization process and select the best design options from a large set of possible designs. This selection process is important for understanding the optimization process and ensuring its effectiveness in finding good design solutions.
- As with any design process, … the development of a good generative model … must be done iteratively. … Typically, you'll run many optimizations … while continuously developing the model … and fine tuning the objectives and the constraints. … To understand how the model is performing, … the designer needs to evaluate the results … of each optimization and decide how to adjust the model … to get the best possible results. … This involves not just looking at … the final designs produced, … but also looking at the entire optimization process … to understand the nature of the design space … and how well the algorithm is able to explore it … to find the ultimate results. … If the designs produced are not satisfactory, … one reason may be that the design space is too constrained … and doesn't have enough variation to produce … the kinds of designs that we're looking for. … For example, if we made a model of a chair … that has four legs, … it won't produce a three-legged chair … no matter how long we run the optimization. …
