In light of the transformative power of new technology, practicing engineers have been advised to develop the ability to apply artificial intelligence (AI) to building design, manufacturing, and product design.

The Founder/CEO of Data Science Nigeria, Dr. Olupayo Adekanmbi, delivered this assignment at a webinar titled: “Building Anything with AI: Building Impactful Solutions with Big Linguistic Models” organized by the Nigerian Academy of Engineering (NAEng) in Lagos.

Adekanmbi, who revealed that investor interest in generative AI is rising in 2023 with an estimated $14.1 billion in funding in 86 deals versus $1.2 billion in 2019 funding in 59 deals, emphasized that architects and building developers can automatically generate architectural plans based on… Construction site, climate conditions and budgets through generative AI applications in engineering and building design.

He stated that with the required skills and capabilities, specialists can deploy power generation to help project developers and engineers optimize the construction of solar farms, heat pumps, water systems and other infrastructure.

For manufacturing and product design, engineers and designers can use generative Al, to accelerate the design and development of parts and components, Adekanmbi explained.

Regarding the use of Chat Pre-Training Transformer (ChatGPT), a software that allows a user to ask questions using conversational or natural language, senior engineers told that basic training of language models involves predicting a word in a language. Sequence words, adding the most common ones; This is observed either as next code prediction or persuasive language modeling.

He added that the rules of real-time engineering include introducing a clear and specific message, using concise language, and giving as much context as possible; Ensure correct grammar and test different outputs.

However, he cautioned that there are ethical concerns about generative AI. These include a lack of transparency, biased responses, inaccuracies, privacy concerns and intellectual property issues, he said.

Earlier, the President of the Nigerian Academy of Engineering, Professor Peter Onwualu, urged members to apply the knowledge gained from the forum and also advised them to participate in the academy’s engineering innovation competition. He also called on members to include professional engineers from various fields to join the academy for the sake of inclusivity.
