Cognitive systems are quickly becoming an important part of our lives, from smartphones to self-driving cars, just to name a few. The idea behind these systems is to relief us from tedious routine tasks in order to give more time for creative and enjoyable work.

However, in CAD we are still in the age of manual labor, where the user is solely responsible to define shape of the design components. Afterward, the created design is usually validated using CAE tools. If the design does not handle the applied loads, it needs to be modified and the process is repeated again until all requirements are met. This iterative process can take weeks to complete, requires a lot of man hours, and most importantly, does not guarantee optimal results.

In this presentation, a unique cognitive cloud-based generative design platform which compiles lightweight structures and meta-materials (lattices) by demand, as well as simplifies and shortens the design-to-additive manufacturing process, will be presented. We will cover three topics:
• How to generate meta-materials (lattices) with predefined properties and performance.
• How to generate optimal topology designs for Additive Manufacturing.
• How to generate optimal meso-structural designs, which combine general topology and meta-materials.
