Technology has contributed to the unprecedented growth of different industries, thanks to the innovations that have continued to deliver outstanding results, bringing humanity’s future within arm’s reach.

As one of the products of the recent revolution of technology, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been the most impressive. In fact, AI has been finding its way into areas and industries that focus on both critical and creative tasks, outperforming and delivering outcomes efficiently and effectively.

The design industry, for instance, have recognized the role of artificial intelligence in introducing a new era of creative work. Centering more on time and space, we’re looking at an age where technological contributions beyond the traditional focus on graphics and products, is at its peak.

For instance, robotics and smart environments will provide creatives with a limitless source of space and boundless abilities that will enable the once impossible and often time-consuming tasks of creating hundreds and thousands of variations of a design. This increase in productivity and better tools will open up new ways and means both for amateur and professional designers around the world.

In fact, experts have predicted that the first impact of artificial intelligence will be more directed at non-designers and how the change will create opportunities to develop their creativity as well as social intelligence: two factors that have been considered to determine the factors that promote the highest employability in present design jobs.

Without replacing human creatives, AI in design will enhance human ability by providing context-specific options, algorithm-based and multi-perspective solutions to the most common design problems through smart platforms and problem-solving bots.
