Not Your Father's AI: Artificial Intelligence Hits the Catwalk at NYFW 2017

#artificialintelligence

This is exactly what Qzone, one of China's largest online social network platforms owned by Tencent, YouTu Lab, an AI research lab under Tencent focusing on machine learning, and Vipshop Holdings Limited, China's leading online discount retailer for brands, have joined hands to accomplish. The three platforms have produced a new AI powered report that reveals the fashion preferences of China's "post-95" generation in terms of most popular colors, fabrics and patterns and inspired a new collection by famous Chinese designer Chi Zhang, named Designer of the year by Esquire China, to be launched at New York Fashion Week 2017. By applying facial recognition technology to big data aggregated on Tencent's Qzone platform, YouTu Lab's algorithm identified the ages of "post-95" users accurately within three years. YouTu Lab leverages Tencent's leading social platforms to develop advanced technologies and applications in areas including computer vision, pattern recognition, machine learning, data mining, deep learning and audio analysis.
