Beyond Metaphors and Misinformation: Machine Learning in AEC

I recently gave a presentation at the AIASF Next conference titled, “This Building Does Not Exist (Yet).” The title is a reference to the website ThisPersonDoesNotExist.com, where machine learning researchers have generated photo-realistic images of non-existent people by feeding neural networks massive datasets of real faces. My presentation revolved around an interactive exercise in which the … Read more

Architecture ex Machina: A Forum to Discuss AI and Design

Rapid progress is being made on the development of machine learning models that are capable of producing original images, text, and audio. This prompts the questions: what changes when architecture comes from the machine? Is it possible to leverage this technology to design buildings, cities, and structures? Architecture ex Machina™️ (AexM) is a working group and … Read more
