NASA uses AI to make hardware that is “three times better in performance”
The resulting components feature “almost bone-like” organic shapes that are able to tolerate higher structural loads than parts produced by humans.
In fact, McClelland found that the AI-designed components have up to 10 times lower stress concentrations while saving up to two-thirds of the weight.
“The structures tend to perform much better,” he said. “They’re somewhere on the order of three times better in performance.”
