Ansys is reinforcing its investment in artificial intelligence (AI) innovation through the upcoming introduction of Ansys SimAI and Ansys AI+ technologies. The upcoming releases build on Ansys’ ongoing expansion of AI integration across its simulation portfolio and customer community.
Ansys SimAI is a cloud-enabled, physics-neutral platform that will empower users across industries to accelerate innovation and reduce time to market, the company says. With Ansys SimAI, users will be able to reliably predict performance of complex simulation scenarios in minutes instead of hours or days. The tool will encourage more design testing and faster progress.
Ansys SimAI will allow users to first train an AI model using simulation results and then make predictively accurate analogous designs. Ansys SimAI will use the shape of a design as the input to facilitate design exploration. This enables leveraging existing simulation results for training, even if the structure of the shapes is inconsistent.
With Ansys AI+, Ansys will incorporate and extend AI features within its desktop products to enhance core functionalities. For example, machine learning modules are included in the desktop version of Ansys Granta MI AI+. Ansys optiSLang AI+ users perform optimization, sensitivity studies, and design with advanced field and scalar ML-based meta-models. The new AI+ offerings will empower customers with more choice for how they access Ansys AI capabilities across our desktop products.
“Ansys’ continued investment in AI is a testament to our commitment to advancing customer experience, accelerating democratization of simulation, and powering next-generation innovation,” says Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of product at Ansys. “By integrating AI capabilities into new and existing products, the time to predict the performance of a complex model can be reduced from 15 days to just minutes.”
Ansys previously announced the beta release of AnsysGPT, a virtual assistant that garners engineering expertise across physics domains, provides 24/7 comprehensive technical support, and reduces response times. AnsysGPT will be available in Q1 of 2024.
