Have you ever wanted some fashion advice? Sure, you could ask your parents, your roommate, or your partner on what they think about your outfit, but if you want a more collective response, the Amazon Echo Look launched earlier this year kind of achieves that goal through the use of machine learning algorithms.
However if you think that AI might not be good enough to get the job done and wanted advice from actual fashionistas, you’ll be interested to learn that the Echo Show will now be connecting to Amazon Spark. What this means is that alongside advice that you’ll be getting from AI, the connectivity to Amazon Spark also means you’ll be able to crowdsource fashion advice from Amazon’s own social media platform.
Of course this doesn’t necessarily mean that the advice you’ll be getting will be better, but having more sources means that you’ll have more options to think about. Perhaps an actual human could give you some tips that AI might not be able to do, and maybe you could find a style that works for you.
That being said, fashion just like art is pretty much subjective and what works for someone else doesn’t mean it will work for you, but getting a bit of outside advice every now and then probably wouldn’t hurt. In the meantime the Echo Look is still an invite-only program and there is no word on when it will be fully released and available to all.
