Nick Senske, assistant professor of architecture, delivered an invited guest lecture on “Machine Learning in Architecture” via Zoom to computer science students at the Ruhr West University of Applied Sciences in Germany. His talk surveyed the history of artificial intelligence in architecture, the application of machine learning methods for optimization and decision-making and the emergence of machine learning aesthetics.

The lecture was arranged through the Transatlantic Virtual Exchange, an online education community and collaboration between Iowa State University, Fulbright Germany, Ruhr West University of Applied Sciences, Wayne State University and Michigan State University.
