(Helsinki, Finland) Jun 18, 2018 – Helsinki Fashion Week and Valossa AI have partnered to discover visitor satisfaction and attitudes towards circular economy on EcoVillage platform, July 20–25, 2018 in Säiliö 486 at Kruunuvuorenranta, Helsinki.

Valossa – a Finnish Artificial Intelligence company – provides AI-powered video services to enable new generation of analytics, content management tools, and methods for business development. The partnership will enable video-based face-recognition features, including gender and emotion, for Helsinki Fashion Week EcoVillage research and reporting purposes. Launched in relation to Finnish Technology Research Center VTT’s exhibition space on location, the partnership is a stepping stone towards emotional intelligence (EI) mapping of the future. Visitors will be able to map their emotions and experiences through Valossa AI booth situated in Säiliö 468, strictly following the new GDPR rules.

“We are truly excited for this partnership, as we are now moving beyond traditional data-collecting methods and entering a new era for more authentic research and reporting results. With the constantly changing technology landscape, it’s important to inspire solutions and to courage people to see the benefit of AI, instead of fearing it.” says Evelyn Mora, Founder of Helsinki Fashion Week.
