Design Creativity and Device Intelligence
Design and creative work does not pursue certainty, but rather benefit from uncertainty. Design and creative artificial intelligence is not for the right answers , but can create uncertainty, so that to inspire the formation of design and creative. Bottleneck of human creation is their own experience, logic and methods, can artificial intelligence helps us beyond our experience or logic or methods, so that release further creation ? Design requires creativity and feelings, which should just play a more important link between artificial intelligence and humanity in the intelligent era. Therefore, the relationship between design creativity and artificial intelligence is far more complicated than the latter substitues the former. Based on this premise, the first “Design and Artificial Intelligence Report” was jointly published by Tongji University and Tezign Information Technology. Through the qualitative and quantitative analysis of academic literature, technical information and industry cases, from expert interviews, trend forecasting, labor force redistribution and education reform, we are trying to construct the interdisciplinary problem of design and artificial intelligence, hoping to help more designers prepare for the artificial intelligence era.
