AI Learns to Design

Big design problems require creative and exploratory decision making, a skill in which humans excel. When engineers use artificial intelligence, they have traditionally applied it to a problem within a defined set of rules rather than having it generally follow human strategies to create something new.

Machine Learning Algorithms Help Predict Traffic Headaches

Urban traffic roughly follows a periodic pattern associated with the typical "9 to 5" work schedule. However, when an accident happens, traffic patterns are disrupted. Designing accurate traffic flow models, for use during accidents, is a major challenge for traffic engineers, who must adapt to unforeseen traffic scenarios in real time.
