Artificial intelligence brought to engineering design

Enabled by the convergence of High Power Computing (HPC) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), Generative Design (GD) can dramatically shorten the product design process by reducing the number of iterations needed, bringing products to market faster, and making them lighter and cheaper. Using this technology, Airbus was able to cut 45% or 30kg of the weight of an A320 partition part, helping reduce its carbon footprint by saving more than 3,000kg of fuel per year.
