This session will discuss opportunities to incorporate AI to accelerate the design process, from documenting and managing complex system interactions to producing code and specifications. Also discussed will be the “gotchas” of incorporating AI into the engineering process and how AI should complement existing tools and processes rather than replace them. Examples in the session will draw on lessons learned in the systems and software engineering disciplines. Still, the session will expand the concepts to broader engineering audiences and experiences.
