Latest Research Story

Dr Yuli Liang, an assistant professor in the Fashion Merchandising program, recently published a research article on the role of artificial intelligence in fashion. She feels that given the growing interest in combinations of fashion and digital innovations, it is critical for both researchers and retailers to understand how consumers respond to new technologies, especially artificial intelligence (AI). The purpose of her study was to examine consumers’ attitudes and purchase intention toward an AI device. She found that perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, and performance risk played an important role in consumers’ attitude toward AI.
