Artificial Intelligence (AI) has long been a source of debate: is it good enough for humans? Is it true that as we become more immersed in this high-tech environment, we will have a brighter future? According to recent research, nearly everyone has a different automation demand. The majority of human labor is being done by high-intelligence computers. You’re probably aware of how Artificial Intelligence is transforming industries such as medicine, automobiles, and manufacturing. What about architecture, for example?
The primary concern is whether or not these high-tech robots will be able to take the place of the creator. Although, in other cases, high-tech machines are insufficient, and you must rely on Human Intelligence. These, on the other hand, can be used to save a lot of time by performing some time-consuming tasks, allowing us to spend that time inventing new designs.
Big data will change the way we design everything:
To refresh your memory, artificial intelligence is a computer system that can execute activities that would typically need human intelligence, such as vision, speech recognition, decision-making, and language translation.AI makes these conclusions based on a large amount of data, and this is where AI may excel in the field of design. Most designers and planners in the business are still in the dark ages when it comes to using historical construction data, design, and building data to handle new projects. The ability to use massive amounts of historical data in a millisecond to improve the architecture design process could be transformative.
Here are five ways artificial intelligence will influence architecture.
1. Artificial intelligence will change the basics:
For an architect, commencing a project demands many hours of research, both in terms of knowing the project’s design goal and previous projects. Artificial intelligence is used in this situation. With AI’s ability to process infinite amounts of data, an architect might easily investigate and test multiple concepts at the same time; conceptual design with little to no use of a pen and paper.
Assume you’re in charge of designing a family home. It’s a difficult task because you have to consider the client’s needs, expectations, and design language. Not to mention that you must be aware of the laws that regulate the construction of your home. You have information about the family, such as age, gender, family size, and so on. An architect might use an AI system to pull all zoning data, building codes, and disabled design data, as well as develop design variations that follow a specific design vocabulary and provide a plethora of possibilities.
2. Parametric architecture will become more common:
Parametric design is a style of design that allows you to experiment with different parameters to create different types of outputs and forms and structures that would not have been achievable otherwise.
The technology, which works almost like an architect’s own programming language, allows you to choose your design output, set limitations, enter data, and produce endless iterations of your product or building in minutes.
Parametric architecture, popularized by CAD programmers like Grasshopper, employs geometric programming and complicated algorithms to allow architects to alter and optimize a building to meet their demands. A technology like this allows AI to focus on its strengths while the architect is free to develop.
3. Construction will become a lot quicker and easier:
When it comes to building a structure, you can never be too prepared. Years of planning are sometimes required simply to bring an architect’s idea to life. Artificial intelligence is used in this situation. AI will simplify the planning process for architects by providing them with access to vast amounts of data, allowing them to create models, assess the built environment, and generate cost estimates. All of this information may be simply communicated to the architect, reducing design and construction time. On the building side, AI can help with the actual creation of something with little to no human intervention. Even now, at MIT, researchers are developing AI-powered drones that can communicate with one another and build miniature models.
4.Smart cities will pop up everywhere
In a few years, the way your city looks now could appear quite different. City planning is a difficult endeavor that necessitates years of meticulous planning.
However, one of the architect’s most important responsibilities is to comprehend how a city will function and how the ecology will cohabit. The rise of AI-powered smart cities will force architects to reconsider their traditional designs. Smart Cities will be locations that are driven by real-time data and feedback, and that communicate with one another in the same way that a living body does. Buildings, cellphones, automobiles, and public spaces will connect with one another to improve living conditions, reduce waste, improve safety, and reduce traffic congestion. This is a tendency that can be seen in some of the world’s most advanced cities.
5. Artificial intelligence will change your home
Apart from creating the ideal home, the architect will now have to consider not only how AI may be used to design the home, but also how AI can improve the user experience. AI will make smart houses possible, just as it has made smart cities possible: living spaces that are sophisticated live data-driven organisms. As an architect, your job will be to incorporate artificial intelligence into the architectural language of the home in order to improve the lives of the residents.
