The Future of Making Things: AI in Design and Manufacturing
Whether you are talking about the design of buildings, cars, movie characters or even entire cities, recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) technologies have opened up new possibilities and revolutionized the creative process. And it doesn’t stop there. As the manufacturing and construction industries become more and more digitized, AI can simplify and increase the efficiency of how things are made.
At this event, Mike Haley, who leads Autodesk’s Machine Intelligence research group, will explore a range of "design-to-construction" cases to look at how AI is being applied in real scenarios. He'll showcase both how it makes processes more efficient and how it allows us to investigate previously unimaginable designs.
