Development of artificial materials and investigation of their applications could revolutionize our daily habits.
Machines capable of “reasoning” and learning can be utilized in various fields such as medicine, banking, aviation or architecture.
Nobody is stranger to the concept of Artificial Intelligence anymore. What was part of the realm of literature and cinema is now recurrently appearing in the news in the form of programmes or robots capable of performing human tasks, such as the AI system that for determines customer payments already implemented by a Japanese insurance company. These machines capable of “reasoning” and learning can be utilized in various fields such as medicine, banking, aviation or architecture.
In engineering, design co-creation process between engineers and intelligent machines may be crucial to obtain results that, separately, would be much more difficult to achieve. From the use of complex learning algorithms and computing power, the engineering field will be able to devise, for instance, bridges longer than ever before, or to propose increasingly sophisticated safety standards.
