Recent achievements in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are often present in public medias as a thrilling bit of news igniting public discussion. However, very little attention is paid to new applications of AI in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry (AEC). The thesis can be broadly divided into two parts: the first part (chapters 1, 2 and 3) attempts to give a context, and to provide a brief review of current research results where methods of AI were applied to problems with origins in the AEC industry; the second part (chapters from 4 to 7) presents an example application of Machine Learning (ML) methods in structural engineering. The thesis follows findings presented and described in a PhD dissertation, titled “Generalizable Surrogate Models for The Improved Early-Stage Exploration of Structural Design Alternatives in Building Construction”, developed and defended by Mehdi Nourbakhsh in 2016.
