Intelligent Suggestions for Furniture Layout


Stanford Reference:

11-376


Abstract


Stanford researchers have designed an intelligent software system that assists users by suggesting furniture arrangements that are based on interior design guidelines. This system incorporates the layout guidelines as terms in a density function and generates layout suggestions by rapidly sampling the density function using a hardware-accelerated Monte Carlo sampler. The results demonstrate that the suggestion generation functionality measurably increases the quality of furniture arrangements produced by participants with no prior training in interior design. This concept can also be applied to designing other layouts such as commercial space, lighting, and other 3D concepts.
