Loose Neural Nets in Architecture

Sep 20, 2012

The recently constructed projects in this paper construe loose networks of analog integrated circuits as neural networks and make the case that emergent behavior in these neural nets forms a low level intelligence. Systems of sensors, emitters, and processors embedded into building components, like ceilings and skins, function in a way that is similar to primitive neurons in an organism, propagating signals through adjacency, ultimately affecting the characteristics of interior space and the performance of exterior building systems.
