Every era and every culture has a specific body image. Beauty standards have been changing over the years. And interestingly, some authorities direct people to have certain types of bodies. For example, in the 21st century, a healthy body is one with muscles. According to the research, people tend to have body shame because of these standards. And even though people go to the gym, they never have their bodies shown on images or social media. Even newly developed artificial intelligence platforms show that a healthy body starts with the muscles. The sportswear manufacturer Asics has decided to put an end to this madness. The company has announced the Asics AI training program, which aims to train AI on body images.
Aim of the Asics AI Training Program
The AI image maker and creator, Omar Karim, states that Asics AI training program is the first of its kind. He indicates that AI programs have been learning online over the years. The images shared online and the dictations about the ideal body image have been leading AIs to mislearn about body image. Unfortunately, research shows that these misleading images cause people to stop exercising.
It is great to know that the world’s leading sportswear company has figured out an upcoming problem that will be difficult to solve. Asics AI training program has a mission to re-teach AI. The company has a platform on which you can upload an image of a body. All you need to do is upload a real body image and describe it. The image you upload can be of your body as well. The thing is not about aesthetics. It is about health and getting rid of the body shaming we have been experiencing. If you upload a body image on social media, do not forget to add the #TrainingAI hashtag to support the Asics program.
