Architecture in the age of Artificial Intelligence

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are currently dominating discussions around the future of work in Australia, with many professions now embracing these technologies. While the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry sees value in the efficiencies that AI promises, innovation in this space is still in its infancy.

In our next Learn@Lunch lecture, Associate Professor M Hank Haeusler will discuss how his work in Computational Design with UNSW Built Environment is helping to propel Architecture and Urban Design into a new era of progress by driving new knowledge and software for living (and building) with 21st century technologies.

In his presentation, Associate Professor Haeusler will also unpack key industry challenges, and offer a glimpse at UNSW platforms that will change the way Architecture and Urban Design is produced and documented. This includes the ‘Centaur Pod’ - the world’s largest soft robotics kinetic structure - and ‘Giraffe’, a two-sided network platform for the AEC industry that gives non-computational designers access to computational tools.
