    • It is the ability to efficiently search through the design space of any given problem (i.e. real project) that is the holy grail of what we nowadays call parametric optimization.
    • assessing the whole design space is practically, and not mathematically, intractable.
    • The traditional solution to this is linked to our ability to optimize mentioned above. People would use their past experience to prune off certain parameters and/or values. Ultimately what this does is reduce the design space to a handful of alternatives that can be then assessed. There is one problem with traditional approaches, like most traditions they cling strong to the past and propagate standard practices.
    • is there a way to populate the vast design spaces of building models in a feasible and practical way?
    • machine learning is like the new electricity
    • What would Machine Learning for building design look like?

    • AEC talent, according to the chart, is hard to come by – not a lot of data scientists working in the architecture, engineering and construction space
    • urban planners can benefit significantly from the analysis of personal location data.
      • We have less data than other sectors
      • We have fewer stakeholders than other sectors, and
      • We are also less transaction-intensive.
    • Productivity in the AEC industry ought to increase in the near term, when new technologies such as building information modeling (BIM), collaborative work processes such as integrated project delivery (IPD), lean construction, and now – data – are used seamlessly and comprehensively throughout design, construction and building lifecycle.
    • As architecture firms drive out those interested in connecting design, construction and client driven data to services, clients are doing the opposite – especially in retail where big data is driving processes from capital planning to store rollout/renovation and management.

    • what a ‘computational design’ position actually means in a business setting
    • specializing in geometric complexity
    • automating project design studies and creating variations
    • problem-solving methodology
    • A computational designer should be able to describe the design problems they have encountered projects and how they developed the computational workflow to aid in their resolution
    • Like any designer, a computational designer should be able to reflect on the value of their methodology and explain how their method produced more desirable results for the project and the team
    • computational design is not BIM. BIM is also not computational design
    • company to think about how a range of skillsets can be built up over time
    • the company could focus on hiring or partnering with an expert in the field.
    • they should be interested to learn about the design challenges specific to your firm and describe a computational vision that can help lead your business to the best possible solution
