Artificial intelligence is especially useful in the early stages of planning – it enhances the factual basis and helps justify design solutions, argues Niko Kautonen.


AI Is Not Born out of Thin Air 

Before we can go into the possibilities offered by AI applications, we need to understand what it takes to produce artificial intelligence, writes Ville Paananen.
