As October advances, sustainability becomes a hot topic. Not just because it's autumn, a season of transformation, but also because October is Energy Awareness Month. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing an increasingly crucial role in making sustainability more accessible.
AI helps in sorting and recommending thrifted items based on eco-friendly metrics. Learn more about energy-efficient choices with AI from the Department of Energy.
Smart Thrifting with AI
AI algorithms can sift through massive datasets to recommend clothing items that not only suit your style but are also sustainable. Algorithms can also identify trends to help thrift stores stock more of what people want, reducing waste.
AI and Ethical Fashion
AI can ensure that the products you’re thrifting are ethically sourced. Tools are being developed to verify the origins of products, thereby promoting ethical fashion. Learn more at Business of Fashion.
