title Integration Of Multiple Knowledge Sources in ALADIN, An Alloy Design System
source [3], 10 p. Pittsburgh, PA: Engineering Design Research Center, CMU, September, 1986. EDRC-05-04-86. includes bibliography
summary ALADIN is a knowledge-based system that aids metallurgists in the design of new aluminum alloys. Alloy design is characterized by creativity, intuition and conceptual reasoning. In this paper, the authors describe their approach to the challenges of applying artificial intelligence to this domain, including: how to focus the search, how to deal with subproblem interactions, how to integrate multiple, incomplete design models, and how to represent complex, metallurgical structure knowledge

title Problems in CAD Practice

summary CAD's greatest promise is as a creative, interactive tool, and planning and construction will be more complex as the need to expand information grows. Our tools not only shape our products, they shape our lives. Technology can influence everyday life and also affect the structure of our society. Architecture is an information-intensive profession, and throughout the world information-intensive activities are being changed by technology. The use of computer-aided information processing in planning and construction brings about a period of dramatic change, and the dimensions of technological change will be breathtaking. In the years to come, CAD will be an expanding field in the architectural office, but how long will it be before architecture is routinely produced on a CAD system? There appear to be three issues: (1) cost; (2) time; (3) quality.

title Digital Space, Social Technology and Virtual Force as Determinants of Design in the 21st Century

summary It is appropriate to begin with salient quotes relating to the Interface Paradigm: 'The grand abstraction of man as the measure of all things, as an originary condition, a whole presence, can no longer be sustained' P. Eisenmann, 1986 'Although notions of adaptation are perhaps most familiar from biology, the most important ideas about adaptation in the history of AI are actually sociological' P.E.Agre, 1998 'When several bureaucracies coexist (governmental, academic, ecclesiastic) in the absence of super hierarchy to co-ordinate the interactions, the whole set of institutions will tend to form a meshwork of hierarchies, articulated mostly through local and temporary links' M. De Landa 1998

title The Computability of Design
source ACADIA Workshop 86 Proceedings - Houston (Texas - USA) 24-26 October 1986, pp. 103-111
summary A number of architectural design studios (second, third and fifth year) at the School of Architecture at the New Jersey Institute of Technology have undertaken traditional design problems through the use of IBM-AT microcomputer based CAD/Graphics systems. Utilizing three-dimensional modeling software, color graphics "paint" software, and animation software, the studios integrated the use of computers into the very heart of the core program as the primary means of design, simulation, and evaluation. At the same time, other non-computer based studios engaged in similar (and often identical) design problems. Therefore, the opportunity became available to compare and evaluate both the impact the computer made to the traditional architectural studio and also to the building design itself.

title Report of a CAAD-Course: Curriculum, Results and Revision
source Teaching and Research Experience with CAAD [4th eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Rome (Italy) 11-13 September 1986, pp. 146-153
summary In 1985 the college of Technology Heerlen started in cooperation with the Academy of Architecture Maastricht a course CAAD on behalf of graduates of both institutes. In this contribution attention is paid to the preparation and frame. The course in 1985 was a great success. After a profound revision the course has started again this year. A report of the experiences by the course developer/co-ordinator.
