Project Description

How will the future design engineer interact with their computer systems? Speaking to the computer? Virtual Reality? Automatic storage of design rules/styles, which the designer assembles? Real time CFD to permit ‘sculpting’ the flow field, stress field, etc.? This project will examine the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence to support hint based creation of new parts and products. It will incorporate value driven design ideas with state of the art optimization and analysis automation to accelerate the new product design process while also allowing automated documentation of the decisions lying behind design choices.

Combined with the latest GPU hardware, Deep Learning, Data Mining and AI methods this will allow advanced designer – machine interaction, providing insights into the next generation of engineering design software.
