Designer Zaldy Goco, Robert de Saint Phalle of Conduit Projects (an interdisciplinary design and consulting studio), and computational designers Nicholas Jacobson and Jared Friedman all looked on in dismay. But much like the other minds behind the red carpet confections on display tonight, AI does not like to be pushed. The task at hand? To use logic, computation, generative algorithms, and mathematical optimization—or, simply, its artificially intelligent brain—to solve for the meticulous…
