You may have heard of artificial intelligence and immediately thought of robots, chat bots, or automation. Those are all good uses of A.I. and there are existing services that can be applied to your business systems to create efficiencies and increase production.
But there's more to A.I. than business systems. Artificial intelligence, A.I., is a programming language that allows the software to learn without further human influence. It's like teaching a child to ride a bike. Beyond the basics of balance and momentum, the child learns on their own how to steer clear of obstacles, accelerate, brake, and even do wheelies. With A.I., you have to interact with it and teach it to respond and act the way you want it to. The potential of A.I. is boundless and quite fascinating.
Have you ever wondered how you can use A.I. to create unique products or services in your business? We are going to introduce you to someone who has done just that.
Spirit & Glitch is a new fashion brand at the forefront of creativity and artificial intelligence (AI). The brand was created by artist and engineer Alex Maki-Jokela (who usually goes by "Maki"). Each design is a careful union of artist intention and machine-driven manipulations using neural networks.
Alex Maki-Jokela is an artist, engineer, and business owner who’s been exploring the edges of technical art, A.I., and human creativity for half of a decade. He’s currently the founder and CEO of Spirit & Glitch, an apparel brand that merges human creativity with A.I. to produce stunning leggings, shirts, and more. He shared with us one of his beautiful creations.
Alex shared his expertise on the following topics:
Maki is an artist, an engineer, and more than anything, an experience seeker. He's worked in a lot of different engineering fields - industrial, mechanical, hardware, software, and over the past few years he's been getting more and more interested in aesthetics and expression instead of just optimizing different flavors of machines. A year or so ago, it just felt more exciting to him to start working with clothing and all of the subtle dynamics and self-expression that come with it. he's worked as an engineer all of my life, but people have always been more interesting to him than machines.
Maki designed and launched Spirit & Glitch as the world's-first A.I. apparel line. He
developed a unique semi-automated A.I. product design process integrating neural network algorithms with human creative flow. He was featured in a The Fashion Robot blog interview discussing the product development process and leveraging A.I. towards creativity.
