Architectural Intelligence: AI & Design


Molly Wright Steenson

Carnegie Mellon University

The history of AI is the history of design. As surprising as it may seem, AI researchers and cyberneticists turned to architects and designers to design the interfaces of AI in the 1960s, 70s & 80s—and to envision new worlds & new futures. In this book reading, Molly Wright Steenson shows how luminaries like Nicholas Negroponte with the MIT AI Lab & Christopher Alexander at UC Berkeley put in place the foundation of our digital landscape—in ways that reverberate deeply today.
