Crisp Clothing uses artificial intelligence to make a shirt that fits perfectly

Crisp Clothing
Finding a tailored shirt that perfectly fits you can be an exercise in futility. Startup Crisp Clothing wants to make it a norm. The family-owned company guarantees it can tailor a shirt to perfectly fit you using your height and weight and recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to receive funding.

The company is founded by father-and-son duo Swapnil and Prakash Kamble. To get the perfect shirt from Crisp, you would need to submit your height and weight to the company during its Kickstarter survey after donating making your purchase before the campaign ends. This is possible because of Bodylabs, the group of engineers and scientists with a technology based on artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms that get an accurate body measurement. Another example of the future of clothing technology.

The shirts are made with 100 percent Egyptian Giza cotton and made by hand by a team of skilled tailors. The shirts currently come in white, black, blue, and pink. Getting your hands on one of them will not come cheap as the shirts will retail for $108 if the campaign reaches its goal. You may be able to get one for as low as pledging $78 toward the campaign, but there are only 12 more shirts left at that price, at the time of publication.

Crisp Clothing promises every shirt will fit perfectly, but just in case it does not, the company is offering $20 worth of alteration credit if it does not fit right. If Crisp can not get it to fit your body perfectly after trying to alter it, you can get a free remake of the shirt.

Custom clothing businesses have a track record of doing well on Kickstarter. In 2013, Threadmason’s Kickstarter campaign accumulated more than $34,000 in pledges for its custom T-shirt business in roughly five weeks. The clothing company’s approach was similar to Crisp’s as people would only need to send in their height, weight, and waist size.

Crisp’s Kickstarter campaign has amassed a little more than $2,000 of its $20,000 funding goal. The campaign ends on July 31. Shirts will ship to most backers in November but will ship in October for those who made an early-bird pledge.

Artificial intelligence can now identify a bird just by looking at a photo
Artificial intelligence can now identify a bird just by looking at a photo

Artificial intelligence technology has proven itself useful in many different areas, and now birdwatching has gotten the A.I. treatment. A new A.I. tool can identify up to 200 different species of birds just by looking at one photo. 

The technology comes from a team at Duke University that used over 11,000 photos of 200 bird species to teach a machine to differentiate them. The tool was shown birds from ducks to hummingbirds and was able to pick out specific patterns that match a particular species of bird.

Researchers use A.I. to make smiling pet pics — and it’s as creepy as it sounds
nvidia ganimal ai research smiling pet

Can’t get your dog or that tiger at the zoo to smile for your Instagram? A new artificially intelligent program developed by researchers from Nvidia can take the expression from one animal and put it on the photo of another animal. Called GANimal -- after generative adversarial networks, a type of A.I. -- the software allows users to upload an image of one animal to re-create the pet’s expression and pose on another animal.

GAN programs are designed to convert one image to look like another, but are typically focused on more narrow tasks like turning horses to zebras. GANimal, however, applies several different changes to the image, adjusting the expression, the position of the animal’s head, and in many cases, even the background, from the inspiration image onto the source image. Unlike most GANs, the program is designed to work with any animal.
