Curious and Creative Machines

Curious and Creative Machines

Professor Hod Lipson, a Professor of Engineering and Data Science at Columbia University, explores the relationship between creativity and AI in mechanical engineering and data science in his presentation. Lipson defines creativity as the ability to fill in the blank, with larger blanks representing a greater potential for creativity. He discusses how generative AI tools such as ChatGPT and Dolly impact creativity and the future of design, specifically for engineers.

Furthermore, Lipson discusses how AI is learning and implementing its skill set, which can assist in the generation of ideas and promote creative problem-solving. He delves into the future of CAD and design, particularly into how AI generates decisions based on data in real time. Lipson examines the difficulties in defining and quantifying creativity, as well as the challenge of teaching people how to design well. He also explores early approaches to design creativity through rule-based topology optimization and the potential of open-ended approaches such as evolution and new technologies like ChatGPT and Dolly. Finally, the presentation considers the use of AI to help design in mechanical engineering, especially with 3D designs and CAD models.

Presented as part of Altair's 2023 Future.Industry conference.
