Artificial intelligence—AI to its friends—has been making headlines in a major way over the past few years, with everyone from Amazon to Google to Microsoft to Facebook doubling down on their development efforts and companies of all kinds increasing investment.
The folks over at FastCo recently talked to experts in the field to get their predictions for AI in 2018. The word is that, this year, AI will become more accessible, more understandable, and more empowering for designers, architects, and makers of all stripes. It’s a good piece, with a nice shout out to Autodesk’s generative design efforts with the Elbo Chair.
