sg2018 Challenge

Before our eyes we are seeing the emergence of a new kind of intelligence, one that has become a part of our everyday lives, and is in many ways an extension of our own into a different mind.

The new mind will be able to learn at fantastic rates, have unbounded creativity, travel to distant worlds, decide to be embodied or not, alter its own behaviour or experience, and perhaps live forever.

Whether humans are directly collaborating with, or indirectly authoring, such computationally intelligent agents, they have the power to be an active partner or tool in design creativity. Machine learning can blur the traditional relationship between a designer and their tools, each learning from the other, adapting, and changing their behaviours or beliefs.

At sg2018, human and computational intelligences will interact with each other and the physical world through robotics, vision, sensing, language, materials, and design - all of which are interfaces between digital minds and physical matter.

We will explore the impact of computational intelligence on the future of architectural design, and how machine minds will improve the world we live in.
