“Unlocking New Horizons in Immersive Acoustic Environments!” Traditional methods of predicting sound acoustics in domes require extensive manual calculations and simulations, leading to time-consuming and resource-intensive processes. The idea is to develop a machine learning model that could calculate the complex acoustic properties of dome structures. This model can help us to predict the sound … Read more

Corbel Arches

We decided to study how machine learning can help us to stack stones and build corbel arches. Corbel arches are a type of arch structure in which the arch is formed by successively projecting stones or bricks from each side until they meet at the center. The arch relies on the structural integrity of the … Read more
