Come and join AI for Mankind's tech talk series.
In this event, we will feature
1) Kitty Yeung, Manager at the Garage, Microsoft to talk about
"Demand and Opportunities in the Tech-Fashion Industry"
This talk gives an overview of the tech-fashion industry with
demos of technology-embedded garments and discusses a few ideas for
future development addressing the environmental impact of current
With the development of open-source hardware, fashion designers and creative technologists have started to include electronics as part of their
designs, adding decorative and/or functional elements to garments. A new field, integrating art and science, has emerged where design and
engineering collide. Driven by creative designs, the industry has
tremendous opportunities but also faces significant challenges in
Kitty Yeung the manager of the Microsoft Garage presence in Silicon Valley. Yeung is a physicist, artist, maker, fashion designer and musician (https://www.artbyphysicistkittyyeung.com). She received her Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Harvard University (thesis: Engineering Plasmonic Circuits in 2-Dimentional Electron Systems) and a M.Sci., B.A. and M.A. in Natural Sciences from University of Cambridge. After grad school, Kitty worked as a research scientist, hardware engineer and user experience designer at Intel.
Her role with Microsoft Garage focuses on creating collaboration and experimentation synergies between employees and the local ecosystem. She leads Quantum Computing study groups, brings AI experts and employees together to level up, and develops partnerships with the local tech ecosystem. One of Kitty’s many personal passions is creative technology – creating art that bridges the gap between design and engineering using the Microsoft Azure IoT and Azure AI platforms.
Yeung creates connected clothing experiments by embedding sensors and responsive technology into her designs then bringing them to life with Azure Intelligent Cloud. She is passionate about hacking the garment supply chain and building a platform on Microsoft technology that enables the digital transformation of the fashion industry.
