In the Paxman research and Innovation Center, a team of researchers have been exploring the use of AI tools, particularly for concept generation tools within a SMART grant funded project through Innovate UK. Collaborating in this research
Center between the University of Huddersfield and Paxman coolers. The aim of this project was to explore a plethora of AI tools, predominantly concept generation tools for the application of conceptualization for streamlining the design process in the medical field. The team has been evaluating Ai art software’s suitability in the medical design process, for developing concepts of Cooling caps and cap covers for Chemotherapy-Induced Alopecia. Other software’s were used, both free and paid (professional). Using the design principles taught at the University of Huddersfield, the team has experimented with the various tools/ functionalities of the free and paid software’s tools in the various stages of the design process. Using a different array of art styles from pen, pencil, computer rendering and photorealism. From the design council, the double diamond process is explored, whereby the various tools are evaluated at the various stages of this method and recommendations are provided to where these tools could be used. Including in the research phase, ideation, development, and delivery stages.
