Fashion designers automated out by Watson IBM: The MayDay Met Ball in NYC is the highlight of the fashion season. Marchesa designed a dress for supermodel Karolina Kurkova which not only interacted with audience emotions by using 150 LED lights and Twitter reactions, but was also to a significant degree designed by an IBM machine called Watson. The ‘cognitive dress’ creation featured white roses that acted as light sources, reflecting the tone of Twitter chatter around the model wearing the machine-designed dress. The Watson computer picked the shape, colour and texture for the beautiful dress using AI, with its dataset learning being based on the brand’s archive images. Designers, your time is up.
