Sanjeev Srivastava - AI Driven Design Approach
From Kathryn Gentilello on April 15th, 2019
Design Space Exploration (DSE) is an activity that is performed to systematically analyze several design points and then select the design(s) based on parameters of interest and design requirements. For complex systems, design engineers spend a lot of time generating new design iterations using simulation-based tools. However, they do not explore the complete design space due to time-consuming design creation and analyses process, and hence do not generate optimal design but rather settle for a sub-optimal design that meets the requirements. Recently, there have been advances in the areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI), cognitive computing, Internet of Things, 3D printing, advanced robotics, that provide capabilities to transform the current design process by automating various design steps, speeding up the design and analysis toolchain, and creative decision making. Within Siemens CT we have been developing a Generative Design framework, which utilizes the AI and knowledge representation techniques in combination with traditional design methods to generate better designs in a faster manner. The talk will address various technical areas of this framework and the various AI methods which we are currently applying to optimally design parts, systems, and processes.
