Artificial Intelligence (AI) does not have to be reserved exclusively for production and software improvements. It can be employed in design as well. GM worked with Autodesk to supply an AI designed seat bracket that was 40 percent lighter and 20 percent stronger than the original part.

Today, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)-based systems enable applications ranging from junk mail or text filters to autonomous vehicles and robots. Engineering firms and their employees have utilized AI and ML to improve the engineering design process and create highly optimized and original products. Early adopters have benefitted from shorter design cycles, engineering productivity and originality, which has transformed entire engineering and product development workflows.

Let’s examine where traditional engineering design techniques and processes can be exceeded by generative design. We’ll consider some real-world examples to realize why increasing numbers of engineers are turning to AI and ML techniques to reinvent and optimize the design process.
