VP Footwear Research
Ales has over two decades of experience applying 3D foot scanning technology to the footwear industry, and studying large (millions) datasets of 3D footscans. As one of Volumental’s earliest employees, he has been the chief architect behind Volumental’s revolutionary fit engine, an AI-based footwear recommendation software powered by Volumental’s database of 10 million foot scans called ‘Volumental Recommend’. He recently wrote a scientific paper, analyzing 1.2 million foot scans from North America, Europe, and Asia, published in Nature (Scientific Reports).
Professor of Fashion Research and Technology
Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences
What if you could develop a system that creates optimal shoes for each individual consumer, involving participants from various disciplines—from doctors to designers to the wearer—improving those shoes based on actual user data that is gathered with sensors? In a nutshell, this is what Troy Nachtigall researched for his PhD Thesis "Materializing data". He will be sharing his insight on what is needed to make such a system a reality, covering technological, medical, creative, and legal aspects.
Digital Strategy Director
Patterns.ai is an artificial intelligence company specializing in digital personalization of consumer lifestyle products. The company has developed groundbreaking optical recognition software that could be used for a wide range of purposes in fashion. You will hear how this technology can be applied to help designers quickly select the right last or sole mold from archives of existing tooling, saving the cost of unnecessary production of new tooling and lowering companies' footprint.
