IBM Introduces Smart Saree with Artificial Intelligence
Tech company IBM claims it has introduce the world’s first Artificial Intelligence (AI)-inspired saree (a garment for Indian women).
It was designed by local designer Gaurav Gupta, using IBM Watson and the saree made its debut at Vogue Women of the Year Awards.
To uniquely celebrate the inspiring women achievers at this event, the saree was fitted with colour changing LEDs. Using Watson’s Personality Insights API and a smart IoT (Internet of Things) integration, the colours changed based on each winner’s personality.
In a first of a kind, according to IBM, its interactive ‘art installation’ at the Vogue Women of the Year 2017 was the focus for many a celebrity.
Co-created with designer Gaurav Gupta and start-up Findability Sciences, the AI-Inspired saree was made highly personal, with the colour of the saree changing based on individual personality insights.
In a simple easy-to-use Interface, according to IBM, all that was needed was the Twitter handle with the name of the person, and the saree took on the hue of the individual’s dominant personality trait.
