Automated Model Composition is a process by which software can automatically generate LEGO models, when provided with enough data about the connectivity of LEGO bricks and either general or specific optimization targets.

In 1999, at Brandeis University, researchers created the first model designed entirely by algorithms; the model was created to span a certain distance with a minimum of parts, using an "evolutionary" system. It is said that their system discovered the principles of cantilevers and trusses while targeting longer distances.
