AI for fashion: Data is the new black
Fashion designers and fashion houses usually start conceptualizing and designing products for the new season six months to one year prior to the actual selling season–though in recent times this has been drastically reduced with the emergence of fast-fashion retailers. That’s why for most apparel retailers, and the fashion industry in general, knowing the trends customers would like to wear next season is extremely important. This talk will describe how modern AI based tools  which can understand fashion images and articles can be used to provide a more data-driven approach for trend analysis and forecasting.  Dr. Raykar will also describe some of our recent collaborations with various fashion designers.
