About this Event
What is AI? And why has it become such a hot topic in architectural design circles?
This lecture offers an introduction to the use of neural networks in architecture, arguably the first genuinely C21st design technique. It explains how neural networks operate, and is illustrated with some of the most stunning examples of AI generated design work. The lecture goes on to ask whether there is a dark side to AI, and whether its extraordinary potential might threaten the future of the architectural profession. This lecture is based on material from the recently published, Architecture in the Age of Artificial Intelligence: An Introduction to AI for Architects, and the forthcoming issue of AD, Machine Hallucinations: Architecture and Artificial Intelligence.
Neil Leach is a Professor at FIU, Tongji University and EGS. He has also taught at other leading institutions, including the AA, IaaC, DIA, Columbia GSAPP, Cornell, Harvard GSD and SCI-Arc. He is also the co-founder of DigitalFUTURES, an academician in the Academy of Europe, and the recipient of two NASA fellowships for research into 3D print technologies for the Moon and Mars.
