Letting AI design sneakers
Why not let AI design sneakers for your next shoe collection?
Stan Van Der Vossen used so-called Generative Adversarial Networks in the development of thissneakerdoesnotexist.com, a site that generates an infinite variety of sneaker designs – all based on a dataset fed with Instagram images of existing shoe designs. The interface even lets the user tweak designs based on a set number of parameters.
In all its playfulness, the technology displays how Artificial Intelligence potentially could be used as a tool, or even direct the design process for fashion designers in the future.
A kind warning. Don’t fall in love with any of the designs. They do not exist.
