This pa­per is con­cerned with the on­go­ing changes and the evo­lu­tion of CAAD us­ing ma­chine-as­sisted tech­niques. It is fea­si­ble to cre­ate a hy­poth­e­sis of the iden­tity of the dis­ci­pline de­picted in the archived pub­lished out­put, and se­man­ti­cally link it to the data cloud. This al­lows for ex­pan­sion of the mean­ings em­bod­ied in the re­search and in­fer­ence about what CAAD is, and to trace back how the field pro­gressed. We pre­sent sev­eral case-stud­ies show­ing how this in­fer­ence is done and fi­nally, ob­ser­va­tions are elab­o­rated and an out­look on fur­ther work is dis­cussed.
