In this video, learn the key technological developments which have enabled generative design and automation within the design industry. This highlights the impact technology has had on the design industry, shows designers what technologies are currently on the market, and helps to anticipate what’s coming next.
- To most designers, generative design is still a new idea, … but some of the technologies behind generative design … have actually been around for decades. … Let's take a quick look at the origins of some of these … technologies, and how they got us to where we are today. … Writing in 1950, Alan Turing first put forward the idea … of artificial intelligence, and wondered whether it would … one day be possible to make … a machine that thinks for itself. … In 1958, Frank Rosenblatt invented the Perceptron, … which is the basis of the neural networks … that power most machine learning solutions today. … In 1960, John Holland introduced the genetic algorithm, … which is still the most common optimization algorithm … used for generative design. … Now given how long these ideas have been around, … you may wonder why it took so long for them … to make an impact on the way we design. … In fact, only recent advances have put these tools … in the hands of designers and allowed them … to be deployed at the scale necessary …
