The psychedelic dreams of Google's Artificial Neural Networks
With parametric design and generated geometry rising to prominence - partly in thanks to the great Zaha Hadid - it's easy to see the connection between the field of design and Google's AI ventures, however loose it might be. The generative design process, where the input is defined by a human, but the design process is carried out by a machine - the works of Mathias Bengtsson come to mind - is slowly gaining momentum. Progress in the field of Artificial Intelligence can take this one step further. Machines might be able to interpret, reinterpret and conceptualize designs faster than any human, or even the whole creative industry if given enough resources.
What the tangible effects of this might be, remains a mystery just yet, but it's something to think about every now and then. The times of a functional AI are far off in our timeline. Fortunately, we have trippy pictures of make-believe buildings to hold us off. For a detailed breakdown of the experiment and more examples of ANN-generated imagery, visit the Google Research Blog.
We are a bunch of creatives from very diverse backgrounds, like architecture, interior architecture, design and graphics design held together by our passion for fresh ideas, new technology, alluring concepts, effortless fun, relentless design, products, and dreams. All of us are a working professional creating living spaces, environments in a daily basis focused on three areas like homes, work- and leisure-spaces.
We want to include you in this flow of creativity through our selection on how we work, live and play.
