SCAD2011 - Increasing information feed in the process of structural steel design

  1. 1. 16 to 17 February 2011 Increasing information feed in the process of structural steel design Pieter Pauwels Tine Jonckheere, Ronald De Meyer, Jan Van CampenhoutP. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011
  2. 2. Ideas Information InformationInformation InformationP. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 2
  3. 3. Who are we? Davy Pieter Ruben JosP. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 3
  4. 4. Outline 1. Information in design applications 2. How designers think 3. Technology support for design thinking 4. Semantic Web / Linked Open Data?P. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 4
  5. 5. Lots of research - Nigel Cross: ‘82-’85-’90-’97-’99-’06-’07 - Bryan Lawson: ‘79-’05 - Donald Schön: ‘83 - Herbert Simon: ’83-’96 - Christopher Alexander: ‘64-’71-’77-’79-’04P. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 5
  6. 6. Important role of theories and beliefs  reflective ‘learning-while-doing’ continuous belief-revision / theory-revision as a product of doing / design activity  Theory-based decision-making The acquired theories serve as a memory of reference ABDUCTIVE REASONING => Designers rely on previously experienced design decisions to make new design decisionsP. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 6
  7. 7. Process of scientific enquiry (C.S. Peirce)P. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 7
  8. 8. Outline 1. Information in design applications 2. How designers think 3. Technology support for design thinking 4. Semantic Web / Linked Open Data?P. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 8
  9. 9. Technology support CAD 3D modelling Sketch apps … Repositories Metadata Internet … Simulation Calculation …P. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 9
  10. 10. MACE – Metadata for Architectural Contents in Europe http://mace-project.eu/P. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 10
  11. 11. Building stories W.M. Martin, A. Heylighen, H. Cavallin. The right story at the right time. AI &Soc. (2005) 19: 34-47P. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 11
  12. 12. Evaluation Objective: provide designers with information from previous experiences by others. Solution: labelled repository of images, text, 3D models, etc.P. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 12
  13. 13. Revisiting the reasoning cycle easily enable designers to learn from new experiences that are - additional to their own experiences, and - most probably different from what was originally intendedP. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 13
  14. 14. So, how to increase information feed?? Try to simulate the complete reasoning cycle => artificial intelligence AND / OR Enable designers to find their information easilyP. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 14
  15. 15. Outline 1. Information in design applications 2. How designers think 3. Technology support for design thinking 4. Semantic Web / Linked Open Data?P. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 15
  16. 16. The Linked Open Data cloud (09/2010)P. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 16
  17. 17. Describe informationP. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 17
  18. 18. LOD cloud + building information BIMP. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 18
  19. 19. Example connections  Geographical information  Expert material information  People / organisation / company information  Photo materialP. Pauwels - SCAD 2011 – 17/02/2011 19
