Live Panel Discussion: Optimal Design Technology Outlook: Jan. 31, 2017

In the past, engineers relied on their industry knowledge, experience, and aesthetic sensibilities to decide the shape of a product. Today, they have the option to turn to generative design, topology optimization, and other technologies to solicit input from AI-like algorithms. But not enough of them may be taking advantage of the new tools, or even know about them. Our expert panelists will discuss how design optimization works whether the software-proposed answers can be trusted and whether automated design will replace design engineers.
