TOMMY HILFIGER AND AI
IBM, Tommy Hilfiger, and DTech sponsored faculty/student teams to work with IBM’s Watson team to explore how Tommy Hilfiger could use artificial intelligence to improve decision-making and experiences across the value chain. The project was showcased at the National Retail Federation along with a student’s SolarActive dress design. The contest’s top design—also by an FIT student—is being considered for production.
