Generative Adversarial Networks for Construction-Aware Design

This talk has three parts. In the first part, I will give a general overview of generative adversarial networks (GANs) and highlight some of the great results achieved with state-of-the-art GANs. Second, I will highlight some of my own work employing GANs for image and shape synthesis. Third, I will discuss challenges of applying GANs to construction aware design.
