Artificial intelligence in textile design: a mini review


This paper explores the evolving relationship between humans and technology, particularly focusing on the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into daily life and its implications for human creativity. It discusses the challenges posed by sedentary lifestyles resulting from the automation of physical tasks and emphasizes the importance of maintaining reasoning abilities amidst technological advancements. Categorizing AI into machines that mimic human thought processes and those that operate rationally, the study examines the potential impact of AI on creativity and decision-making. The text highlights the increasing use of AI in wearable technology and textile design, pointing out the shift towards garments capable of autonomous decision-making. However, it raises concerns about the potential consequences of over reliance on AI, including loss of human reasoning abilities and ethical implications such as social manipulation and invasion of privacy. Drawing from various scholarly perspectives, the paper discusses the potential risks and benefits of AI, including its role in augmenting human creativity. While some researchers argue that AI can enhance creativity by providing innovative tools and workflows, others caution against the homogenization of designs and the need for regulatory frameworks to ensure responsible AI use. Ultimately, the paper concludes that AI should be viewed as a tool to augment human creativity rather than replace it entirely. It advocates for collaborative approaches where AI assists human designers in exploring new creative possibilities while upholding ethical standards and individual expression.
