NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University’s School of Architecture + Art presents “Two Algorithms and the 436 Mandolins,” a lecture from architect-entrepreneur Dan Horowitz on artificial intelligence as a generative design tool on at 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18, in the Mack Hall Auditorium.

This event, free and open to the public, continues the School of Architecture + Art’s 2019-20 lecture series.

Horowitz, who is on Rensselaer Polytechnic's faculty, studied architecture at University College, London, and obtained his Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, where he received the Henry Adams Medal. He has two post-graduate degrees in technology and pedagogy from the Southern California Institute of Architecture. Early in his career he worked on the design of a new science building for the University of Pennsylvania. Horowitz’s experience has been marked throughout by the integration of technology into design. ​

Dan Horowitz

Horowitz is passionate about artificial intelligence as an important component of the design process, as well as the business aspects of the architecture profession. He will address an artificial intelligence application called style transfer, which uses machine vision and machine learning to create novel new forms.

His expertise in the relatively new blockchain model applies modern technology to improve business efficiency. The founder of two successful companies, Horowitz is currently following a new opportunity for a blockchain-model start-up. For more information, see:
