"Artificial Intelligence for Fashion" (original title in RUSSIAN: "Искусственный интеллект для моды"
Discurse
May 12, 2019
Искусственный интеллект - уже реальность нашей жизни. Нет такой сферы, где бы сейчас не применялись цифровые технологии. И мода не исключение. Умные зеркала, виртуальные примерочные, боди-сканеры, 3D-принтеры - вот лишь малая часть технологий, которые вовсю внедряют модные бренды и ритейлеры. А завтра может оказаться, что самую успешную коллекцию создал вовсе не человек, что компьютер разбирается в модных трендах лучше бьюти-блогеров и что одежду не шьют, а "печатают".

Андрей Голуб - основатель и генеральный директор инновационной компании ELSE Corp. В 2017 году Forbes включил ее в десятку стартапов, изменивших модную индустрию Италии.
Андрей родился в Казахстане, вырос в Беларуси, окончил факультет робототехники Белорусского национального технического университета по специальности "прикладная математика", затем аспирантуру в области системного анализа и проектирования инновационных технологий. В 2004 году переехал в Италию по приглашению НИИ искусственного интеллекта FBK. С 2009 года в качестве независимого консультанта сотрудничает со многими высокотехнологичными компаниями и международными стартапами.

Personalized Digital Last (a Women’s Example)—The Tool Required to Enable Mass Customization
IEEE-IC, IEEE Industry Connections
August 04, 2019
This white paper examines the development of a personalized digital last and the impact on the role of footwear technicians. As the personalized digital last becomes the basis of future footwear production, the role of footwear technicians may expand to include a broader definition of fit, maintaining libraries of different lasts, and maintaining quality safeguards for mass customized of footwear. Though this paper focuses on women’s footwear, the issue of fit is universal for men, women, and children. The techniques described in this paper, can be utilized for most footwear segments.

IEEE Industry Connections (IEEE-IC)3D Body Processing (3DBP) Initiative
IEEE-SA
August 01, 2019
The background, goals, and status for the IEEE 3D body processing (3DBP) initiative are introduced in this white paper. This initiative was launched in the first quarter of 2016 with an initial focus on exploring technology standardization opportunities for hardware and software technologies across the “3D body processing” pipeline; i.e., from scanning of people and creating body model data to simulating, modeling, analytics, and visualization. A Virtual Fit use case and relevant 3DBP attributes are examined as an example of a 3D body processing use case. File formats, metadata, and communication protocols are discussed and initial guidance is proposed for evaluating and selecting among existing formats and protocols. While the white paper utilizes examples from an apparel/retail context, it is important to note that the direction taken by the 3DBP initiative is applicable to use cases in other industries such as health, wellness, fitness and athletics as well as complementary to adjacent technology ecosystems such as IOT, 5G, AI, fog, and cloud computing.
