The Future of Design, Simulation and Optimization

Dr. Ming Zhou, Sr. Vice President for software development at Altair provides his perspective on the future of design, simulation and optimization. Simulation-driven design has advanced markedly since the turn of the millennium. Optimization algorithm is a centerpiece of the puzzle automating manual trial-and-error design iterations. Topology optimization has been playing a key role in growing the popularity of optimization technology due to its power in reimagining designs. Still, the process of applying simulation and optimization tools remain laborious. This talk will attempt to envision a future where optimization algorithms and AI/ML take over the most laborious tasks in the ‘kitchen’, turning engineers into connoisseurs mostly at the ‘tasting table’.

The recording is about 19 minutes long, and was presented at the 2020 Global Altair Technology conference.
