Zaha Hadid, Amazone and APWorks have all been lined-up for Altair’s European future of design event, Converge, with an impetus on looking to nature as well as artificial intelligence for design inspiration.
Talks from the likes of the Elise Alfred Wegener Institut will cover how the evolution of nature has impacted its designs – in Elise’s case the digitalisation of ocean biomimicry.
Leaning heavily on the abilities of its topology optimisation and generative design softwares SolidThinking, the event will give a platform to those exploring the ‘innovative intersections of technology and design’.
“With a special focus on designs inspired by nature through artificial intelligence engineering tools, Converge will provide the attendees with a competitive edge, knowledge, and technologies needed to be truly innovative,” said Dr. Pietro Cervellera, Converge organiser and country manager at Altair Engineering.
The event will return to the SANAA building in Essen, Germany, on 17 October 2017, with DEVELOP3D as media partner. Click here for more information.
