How Artificial Intelligence Assists Designers

Artificial intelligence can assist designers in architecture, engineering and construction industries. It helps with tedious, repetitive tasks and suggests possible viable outcomes for a new approach to design and development. This frees up the time of designers for more creative tasks, such as determining how to make a building more usable, sustainable, and energy-efficient.

Dynamic Software Tools That Learn And Adapt

Virtual companions are being developed for designers that not only suggest possible solutions but also learn as the designer chooses between recommended options. Static software tools are being replaced by dynamic ones that keep learning and adapting.

The system stores the actions taken by designers and creates rules about how to react in similar situations in the future. For example, if engineers were working on a proposed new bridge, AI systems could provide a case for how it should be constructed based on successful past projects. 

A Circular Economy

Less variation is an important outcome of an AI-supported process. Designers may use different methods to solve challenges, and with AI, there would be fewer variations in the outcome. This would make the manufacturing of building parts more efficient and make the implementation of a circular economy possible.
