Virtual Cloth for E-Commerce

Principal Investigators:

Ron Fedkiw

Project Summary:

With the fast-growing e-commerce industry, online cloth shopping has become increasingly popular across the world, and in particular a large portion of the transactions happen on mobile devices. One of the biggest challenges that e-commerce companies face for selling clothes is to help customers establish realistic expectations of the garments’ fit and look on their bodies via virtual fitting. Not only can virtual fitting help reduce logistical costs in returns, shipping and restocking, but also increase customer satisfaction rate leading to more future sales. We believe that the key to addressing the virtual fitting problem is to combine deep learning with physics-based models. This requires more than the hybridization of state-of-the-art technologies, but new ideas at the interface between these disparate fields.
