Generative design allows computers to do the heavy lifting, while freeing engineers up to truly innovate. Jonny Williamson sat down with Jeff Kowalski, chief technology officer of Autodesk, to learn more.
The Manufacturer was granted a rare look behind the scenes at BAE Systems’ Military Aviation and Information (MAI) division at Samlesbury in Lancashire, to witness the production lines for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and the Eurofighter Typhoon. Nick Peters reports.
Advances in technologies such as cloud-based high-performance computing, AI, and machine learning are leading us closer to a “push-button manufacturing.” future, but despite these advances, the fact remains that design and manufacturing are largely disconnected. Autodesk's Diego Tamburini explains how to break down the siloes.
We are approaching a time when artificial intelligence and robotic systems will not only surpass humans in carrying out labour intensive and high-precision tasks, but also become ‘smart’ and able to come up with ideas, designs and solutions.
