BIMHOX: The Evolutionary Information Genes
Autodesk University
Collapse Expand


This class will talk about the DNA of different buildings and how they can be compared to living organisms. We can classify species, so why can’t we apply knowledge from bioinformatics to the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry? This class will show how deep-learning algorithms can be applied to perform predictive analysis based on the “parents” generation. The concept derives from a better understanding of how our human evolution works. It diverges from Darwin’s and Lamarck’s theories to imply an evolution of our genes during the transfer of the information from parent to child, from a historic airport to the next one. This specific gene is called HOX. Understanding the evolutionary theory related to the transfer knowledge is a key point for the raising of artificial intelligence in the AEC industry.
