Chris Boos, Arago founder and CEO, recently weighed in on the impact of AI in fashion forecasting and supply chain management in an OpEd for Business of Fashion. In the piece, Boos determines that AI chatbots and and automated "shortcuts" that leverage AI may not be the best application in an age where boutique brands need to differentiate on customer service. He points instead to the recent overproduction that cost H&M shareholder dearly and recommends AI in the supply chain.

The Business of Fashion has gained a global following as an essential daily resource for fashion creatives, executives and entrepreneurs in over 200 countries.

Ryan Sommer

MaintainPR client Arago (www.arago.co) has been in the AI game since the 90s. They are a leading artificial intelligence company that helps businesses automate their IT processes through intelligent automation.

Today at TechCrunch Disrupt London, Arago dropped a bombshell: their proprietary AI platform HIRO, which uses reasoning and a knowledge-based problem-solving engine optimized by machine learning to deliver cutting-edge enterprise IT automation solutions to clients worldwide, is already beating human players at FreeCiv.

It's a huge accomplishment for a smaller company (Google's DeepMind, with much more resource, only just start accessing APIs to play Starcraft II) and some of the world's biggest AI players, like Facebook, said it couldn't be done at all!

For more details, check out the press release and coverage from TechCrunch's Darrel Etherington as well as IDG Paris bureau chief Peter Sayer. Both are Civ players themselves that never got close to even beating the game's built in AI!
