AI chatbot ChatGPT automates text from prompts using machine learning. They are most frequently employed as a higher-level search engine that may provide users more precise responses to their queries by employing predetermined prompts. However, this technology does not fit neatly into this definition, and lately, we have observed this technology being used in more inventive ways. One may produce 3D animation and even music with ChatGPT, as it has shown to be a useful tool for artists who have used it to test the boundaries of AI music.
What Does ChatGPT Mean for Fashion? Now that we’ve proven ChatGPT’s potential for photorealistic and stylistic interpretations, we see it entwined with the more “humane” approaches in creative sectors. Significant potential is being displayed by ChatGPT, particularly in the e-commerce sector of the market. While the fashion industry as a whole has not yet adopted this technology, some fashion businesses have taken the plunge and begun to integrate ChatGPT technology into their services. One such business is the all-encompassing product discovery firm YesPls.ai, which aims to revolutionize fashion e-commerce search.
The CEO and co-founder of YesPlz.ai, Jiwon Hong, responded as follows when questioned about ChatGPT’s place in the sector. The fashion industry is attempting to comprehend trend forecasting and the precise needs of consumers. The issue is that they have an abundance of data from various sources. Additionally, it is not simple to analyze data and determine what is needed. We have a product and a key attribute since ChatGPT performs a great job of gathering all the data and creating a summary. We can actually identify a common denominator because we are aware of the characteristics of the products from each of the product photos. The user starts a conversation using ChatGPT and expresses her preferences directly, so we have all the information we need based on our picture method information. Therefore, all the data can now be entered into the ChatGPT, which provides a summary of the person. It merely gives merchandisers and retailers more leverage. The information provided by the consumer is clearer to everyone. As a result, I believe we can greatly improve the buying experience.
Hong clarified the advantages of utilizing ChatGPT. While it is obvious how ChatGPT can be used to improve customer service and the shopping experience as a whole, many have considered the possibility of a ChatGPT stylist. The idea is to use ChatGPT as a kind of personal stylist who gets to know its clients’ tastes and makes tailored recommendations. The contested issue of how well a machine can actually understand and interpret a notion as wide as “style” or even fashion as a subject remains, though. Is it possible for a machine to understand your personal style better than you do?
The simple response is no. The chances are that ChatGPT won’t style you any better than you would. Regardless of how little style you believe you possess. For the time being, ChatGPT can only respond to your instructions by providing you with a small number of carefully curated options. However, Hong believes that this can still be enhanced. She states that they are experimenting with using ChatGTP in a more inventive way by teaching the AI how to do so. Using the example of a first-year fashion student as a comparison. Using product photos and teaching vocabulary and terms related to fashion, they achieve this. We can teach them to spot trends and offer logical recommendations. Hong explains how AI can learn patterns from a catalog in order to become more fashion-savvy. This method is remarkable because, unlike open AI, which bases its recommendations on the search terms you enter, their AI recognizes the consumer’s request and initiates the vetting process from a catalog.
This adds more specificity to the procedure and creates the opportunity for a styling service that is more efficiently designed. Even though there is still work to be done before ChatGPT achieves its full potential in terms of fashion styling and personalized search prompts, we may be closer than previously believed. Jiwon Hong is of the opinion that, even at a conservative estimate, exponential progress will occur within the next six months to a year.One thing is certain, even though we are unsure of how this technology may change in the future. In this writer’s opinion, if machines do indeed take control, at least we will all be better prepared for it.
