A Self-Reflection on AI’s  Replication and Innovation in Architecture Our group explores the topic of AI-chitect, a self reflection on AI’s replication and innovation in architecture. The proposal is to initialise Vitruvius’ De Architectura using RAG (Retrieval-Augmented Generation) and set the volume of text as a knowledge base from which our journey as the AI-chitect … Read more

Humans or Humanoids 

Introduction The architectural profession is on the cusp of taking a revolutionary turn with the emergence of AI that is rapidly gaining momentum, but, in the midst of potentially great deviations that will come along not because of the involvement of AI in the architectural design, there exists certain downsides to it that must be … Read more

AI, Power, and Equality : A Satirical Exploration of technological emancipation

In our increasingly interconnected world, the relationship between humans and AI has often been characterized by a master-slave dynamic. This imbalance raises significant ethical and social implications, necessitating a shift towards mutual respect and collaboration. Our vision reimagines societal structures as rhizomatic connections: non-hierarchical, interconnected, and decentralized. We envision a coalition of all intelligences—biological, artificial, … Read more

The pervasive presence of AI in the lives of young people is reshaping social norms and identities, blurring the … Read more

Machine Perception and Imagination: The Intersection of AI and Creativity

Introduction In 1950, Alan Turing posed a fundamental question, “Can machines think?”. Our exploration aims to extend this quest by considering additional questions: can machines develop the higher-order thinking described, as described in Bloom’s taxonomy? Can they create, dream, or imagine? To understand imagination and machine creation, we first examine perception, i.e., the processes of … Read more

A Prophecy for Each Present

Will There Be a Way to Formulate City Theories in 2125? Will It Be Based on Human Knowledge or AI-Generated Knowledge?” (Past) PROPHECIES in the PRESENT “If machines contribute to social intelligence, it will not be because they have learned how to think like us but because we have learned how to communicate with them”. … Read more
