Artificial Intelligence at London College of Fashion
A unique programme to teach students at LCF about the potential uses of artificial intelligence within fashion.
A unique programme to teach students at LCF about the potential uses of artificial intelligence within fashion. The FIA team worked with Dr Pinar Yanardag of MIT Media Lab to run a series of sessions across 8 weeks introducing a group of 18 female students at LCF to the concepts of machine learning and artificial intelligence. The students were also taught to write programmes in Python in order to create their own projects and use-cases for AI within fashion.
Starting with an overview of what machine learning and artificial intelligence actually are, students from across a range of courses at LCF were then taken through some of the current research papers being written for the uses of these technologies within the fashion industry.
Using these ideas as a starting point, they were then taught to write programmes in Python with a view to developing their own projects. Working in groups, they devised proof-of-concept showcases of the uses of AI within the fashion industry, as well as being shown how and where to gather appropriate data to train their own algorithms. Areas explored included: predicting and forecasting fashion trends, recommendation systems and personalisation, style transfer, generative AI models, image translation and image in-painting.
