Augmented intelligence (AI) is disrupting the complexity where designers thrive. A new era of collaboration enables shift from data overload toward data sensibility. How will capitalizing on augmented intelligence affect your practice? Your productivity? Geodesign, a unique AI, provides distinctive opportunities—learn from practitioners successfully navigating this shift.

Learning Objectives:

Kelleann Foster, ASLA

Director, Stuckeman School of Arch. and Landscape Arch.
The Pennsylvania State University

Kelleann Foster, RLA, ASLA is a licensed landscape architect, professor in Penn State’s landscape architecture department and Director of the
Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. She is the author of a book in Wiley & Sons “Careers in Design” series:
“Becoming a Landscape Architect.” A recent sabbatical at Esri resulted in the development of Penn State’s online Geodesign graduate programs. The insights gained during that research are widely applicable for professional practice . Much of her professional and research work uses computer technologies to communicate alternative scenarios to citizens. Her work has received national and international recognition.
