Artifical Intelligence and Design

By Elizabeth Crofton | Artificial Intelligence (AI)

AI Will Reshape the Design Process and the Role of the Designer

Artificial intelligence is already playing a role in the design process in the form of tools like simulation and generative design. But what will the AI-powered design experience look like 10, 20, or 50 years down the road? Mike Haley, senior director of Machine Intelligence at Autodesk, gives us a glimpse into a future where co-designing with AI is intuitive and natural, where AI can help you not only generate designs, but sort and choose them, suit subjective aesthetic preferences, synthesize ideas, and suggest new ones.
