I've wanted to have a guest on the show to chat about artificial intelligence & machine learning in relation to CFD for a while now. It keeps coming up in other discussions but this is the first founder interview where I get to scratch the surface of this huge topic.

Today I’m talking to Lieven Vervecken one of the founders of Belgian CFD startup Diabatix - mixing AI/ML with generative design, optimisation & traditional CFD methods to design a new breed of heat sinks.

Lieven fills us in on:

• their PhD-to-Business journey & the importance of early contact with (potential) customers
• how they operate their business somewhere in between software development house, consultancy & software-as-a-service - taking the best of all worlds
• what they mean by the baggage-laden terms, generative design & artificial intelligence
• why they’re more than just a fancy optimisation tool
