Course Description

Course Description: An overview of machine learning tools and techniques that can be used in architectural design process, applying machine learning workflows as generative experiments, selecting and using some of the Artificial Intelligence tools depending on the needs of architectural design, collecting and preparing the dataset in groups, selecting and training some machine learning model and finally generating designs using the created model. Course Objectives: Acquire an overview of machine learning models and learn the potentials and weaknesses of each model. Learn how deep neural networks work and how to use them in architectural context. Obtain the skill of selecting the suitable machine learning platform and the skill of adapting the platform for the design purpose. Practice on obtaining a dataset, cleaning and structuring it and converting it to a machine interpretable entities to be used in generative process. Create architectural designs by using machine learning approaches.
