Informed actualizations: From AI to physical computation

The MS ACT Lecture Series aims at discussing research framed by invited guest speakers. The MS ACT Program focuses on architecture expanding relationships between science, technology and culture through
innovation in algorithms, simulations, ai, robotics, robotic fabrication and materials. The spring 2022 lecture series discusses alternative means to understand the dialectics between the ideal digital and the physical digital. Within an architecture of information, ai, robotics and materials are thought as actualization interfaces. This process understands information flows and their actualizations as architecture.

Introduction and Moderation:

Computational Being: Origins, Scales And Forms Of Practice

Shai Yeshayahu is an Assistant Professor of Interior Design at the Creative School in Toronto, Canada. He is the co-founder of VerS +, a research-based collaborative using perceptive tactics to assimilate the impact of ancient, local, and emerging bodies of knowledge on design making. The collaborative has designed, fabricated, and mounted several installations, and completed commissioned projects. Currently, the collaborative is looking at how technologies and knowledge-oriented models inform the architecture of Interiority.
