Sound of Style: Sensing beyond human Perception
In this edit, We bring you how Color, one of the dimensions of Style, can be perceived through sound and go to an extent of getting beyond the human perception.Greatest of innovations happen under constraint. This is evident in how Neil Harbisson became the world’s first Cyborg. He was born with an extreme form of color blindness that results in seeing in grayscale.
This is how Neil Harbisson, listens to colors.
With advances in computer vision and artificial intelligence, fashion can be converted from visual senses to music for example. This enables us to abstract the taste of consumers and come out with relevant propositions.
Here is an attempt by Stitchfix converting the taste of one of their customers into a musical rhythm.
Hope you got a fresh perspective of generalising taste. A huge world of possibilities lies ahead of us in serving consumers in a way better than before.We at Stylumia are working at mapping taste of fashion at various levels of aggregation from the unit of 1 (consumer) to store, to city, region and the country.
Few applications of taste match include
1. Deep Personalization
2. Taste driven stock replenishment/replacement to stores/distribution points
3. Taste driven predictions for future
4. Brand DNA Maps
It is a matter of time we will say the style “Sounds Good“.
