Can Computers Beat Humans at Design?

Design is everywhere: high-performance turbines, polymers with outstanding material properties, unmanned aerial vehicles, metamaterials, or computer algorithms. However, the best designs are a product of tremendous work of high-skilled domain experts.

I will show that we are on the verge of a transition where computational methods start beating humans at design. I will describe a series of questions that need to be addressed to move the field of computational design forward: how to represent a design, how to represent design space, how to find designs with optimal performance, and how to bridge the gap between simulation and reality.
