This AI Learns Your Fashion Sense and Invents Your Next Outfit MIT Technology Review - 2 years ago
  • Artificial intelligence might just spawn a whole new style trend: call it “predictive fashion.”
  • In a paper published on the ArXiv, researchers from the University of California, San Diego, and Adobe have outlined a way for AI to not only learn a person’s style but create computer-generated images of items that match that style.
  • The team then used that information to train a generative adversarial network (GAN), a type of artificial intelligence that is especially proficient when it comes to generating realistic images.
  • GANs, which were created by Ian Goodfellow, one of MIT Technology Review’s 35 Innovators Under 35 for 2017, have been in the news recently: after a different research team trained them on real images of Hollywood stars, the networks were able to create eerily believable fake celebrity faces.
