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 computers 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 on this new technology, and its impact in the field of design. The students will be familiarized with different algorithmic strategies and corresponding parametrization models.

This term will focus creative applications of AI. We will be starting from explorations in Rhino Grasshopper Environment and moving over to Stable Diffusion.

Coding in python will be the focus of the course. A prior knowledge on Rhino Grasshopper is required.

In this course, students will be working in groups of 2-3. At the end of the semester, all groups are asked to present their work as well as write a 3000-5000 word scientific paper, that is documenting their semester work.
