Talk Topic: "Towards Neural Architecture"
Outline: "Since the introduction of Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) in 2015, the architecture discipline has been observing with increased interest how this Machine Learning method can be used creatively to explore design variations. By pitting 2 Neural Networks against each other, GAN’s are able to generate results as images or even 3D models that profoundly question the current ontological thinking in architecture. They represent a departure from top down design methods based on the experience and education of individual architects and instead rely on extensive databases of images (or 3D models) of architecture and architecture components. As these databases can be further informed by data from other areas (economic, ecologic, social but also artistic, philosophical etc), they result in an architecture that is new, surprising and occasionally challenging for the observer – provoking questions about authorship, agency, and what it means to be human. Similar discussions are currently going on in the arts, where artists working with Machine Learning methods are exploring similar intellectual frameworks. For this new area of architecture inquiry I propose the name "Neural Architecture"
