A Multidisciplinary Approach to AI Generated Architectural Design

Presented at the 2019 Florida Conference for Recent Advances in Robotics

Abstract: In this paper, we hope to demonstrate approaches intended to further direct an implementation of Deep Style AI to create architectural works. We explore several processes through an interdisciplinary lens that are used in tandem to direct the AI to complete a controlled task using a human in the loop scenario. Through an understanding of the mechanics of the Deep Style AI in action, we are able to interrupt both the AI’s learning and application processes. By interrupting these processes, we are able to insert intentional data used to direct the work of the AI. By demonstrating the possibility of the AI’s ability to complete a controlled and directed task we hope to outline the possibility that this readily available and open source neural network can assist in the formation of original creative works.

Project Experience


Winner of Best iOS Hack at WHACK 2017

HTML, CSS, Javascript, Objective-C, Java

An app & website aimed at bringing joy to the lives of terminally ill children. Wishers can fill a pinboard with all the things they love about life. We then use an AI to match their interests to a dream vacation. After we find an Airbnb for them the child's parent's can crowdfund the trip through Wishbnb.

Project Eyecryus

Presented Research at NSA Seminar on Cryptology History

Lua, Objective-C

The culmination of extensive research in 2017. Pronounced Icarus, this project was a new kind of subconcious password that works from reading eye movements while reading. The eye movements tracked are subconcious and not replicatable. Incorporates aspects of nurture and nature specific to each person. First progressive subconcious password wherein the actual simulation evolves through participation. First subconcious password that can readily run on almost all mobile and portable devices.

html, css, bootstrap, jquery, angular.js, node.js,, amazon-web-services, microsoft-sql-server, cloud9

Our software allows people to watch secured streams from the comfort of their own homes. The users log onto their account and are provided with instant access to several streams. While viewing the feed, users can interact with others via a chat system, or report any crimes they witness. The more active users on a stream, the better the reliability of tips. We've built a virtual wall; one whose usefulness extends far beyond border security. We can also provide: job creation, loss prevention, stalker apprehension, users watching bodies of water to prevent drowning, any security needs via viewers and users
