This article presents early-stage research and a test bed for AI technology on the integration and experimentation of creative AI (CAI) in conjunction with hybrid design tools (HDTs), environments (HDTEs) (i.e., web based), and clouds architecture. The objective is to build, develop and test HDT(E)s as assistive collaborative CAD support systems for design engineering processes (DEPs) and education. For example, in education a paradigmatic shift in the conceptualization of learning and knowledge acquisition is observed. The goal is to find a set of guiding principles, metaphors and ideas that inform the development of CAI imbued with computational support tools, new theories, experiments, and applications. Results and findings are presented of early-stage research.
