Re-evaluating Computer-aided Optimization

What do we lose or gain in the era of generative design?

Traditionally design engineers take the lead in defining the shape of a product.

But the emerging computer-aided optimization, topology optimization, and generative design tools take the opposite approach, giving the software unprecedented autonomy to define the design geometry.

In the premiere episode of this brand new webcast series, we put ESTECO, COMSOL and Altair in the hot seat to discuss the following:

  • How can design teams trust the software-proposed designs?
  • What is the role of the human engineer in the new workflow?
  • What does automation mean for the future of design engineering?

Please submit your own questions concerning generative design / topology optimization / algorithm-driven optimization so the panelists can address them in the webcast.
