Description

This course covers the application of artificial intelligence in the design process. The use of AI in the creative industry is an emerging field, where the use cases are investigated but not widely documented yet. Though these algorithms bring a new approach to design creativity where the interaction between humans and computer results in the emergence of novel design variations. However, such a new methodology requires a precise understanding of technology and the calibration of the design methods for the developing applications of AI.

This course aims to train the students on the topics of artificial intelligence, providing them with a theoretical and practical framework to on this new technology, and the impact of it in the field of design. The students will be familiarized with different algorithmic strategies and corresponding parametrization models.

This term the students will be exposed to the design problems on the urban scale. We will be taking EUROPAN 16 as our brief and developing an adaptive urban generator for the given requirements of the brief.

Due to COVID 19, the course will be held online. Tutorial videos will be shared with the students as a preparation for the in-person meetings. In video tutorials, the tools will be investigated whereas in the meetings the student projects will be discussed focusing on the applied methods.

In this course, students will be working in groups of 3-5. At the end of the semester, all groups are asked to present their work as well as if the work is well developed; it is optional to submit the work to EUROPAN 16 competition.
