MIT promotes ‘Back to Bicycles’ with Artificial Intelligence
‘In the world of Artificial Intelligence we still live with the things which are invented centuries ago’. Can we implement AI to the old inventions? Here follows the answer.
Keeping the question of implementing Artificial Intelligence to old inventions in mind, Faez Ahmed wanted to reinvent the bicycle wheel. He and his team used an easy method using artificial intelligence that can generate new and improved designs for a range of products including the traditional bicycles. They created advanced computational methods to blend human-driven design with simulation-based design.
This happened in MIT’s Design Computation & Digital Engineering Lab (DeCoDE). For the new work using AI-driven design for bicycles, Ahmed and his collaborator Professor Daniel Frey wanted to make it easier to design customizable bicycles which will encourage more people to use bicycles over transportation methods that emits gases that are harmful for our planet. This movement can motivate people to use bicycles of their choice which leads to less road traffic, pollution and as a result the balance of nature shall not be lost.
