IBM’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform, Watson, worked together with designer Gaurav Gupta to create an AI sari gown.

Gaurav Gupta said about the collaboration: “When IBM approached with this very exciting collaboration, I thought the project was completely up my alley… That is magic.” Gupta is known for his ethereal couture creations and so his avant garde aesthetic was mixed with state of the art technology to create an interactive dress.

The dress, modelled by celebrity Archie Panjabi, uses white fabric with integrated lighting that covers the entire dress. The lighting uses AI technology to make the colours and patterns made by the lighting change depending on the mood of the person who is interacting with the wearer of the gown. This uses Watson’s tone and emotion gaging software which mixes with Gupta’s dress structure that brings to mind modern architecture. The dress was the first of its kind in India.

Watson by IBM is an AI platform for businesses that aims to provide unique insights into their data which is analysed under data protection. The platform reacts to user’s tone, emotion, and encompasses computer leaning and chat bot formulation. Watson was created in 2014 and is based in New York’s Silicon Alley.
