Akosua Asare appears on Dragon’s Den to pitch an App being trained on SOSCIP’s GPU-Accelerated Platforms

A truly remarkable project that fully captures the spirit of SOSCIP’s mandate – to foster industry adoption of AI and Data Science among start-ups and scale-ups. Essence Luxe Couture sells more than wigs, they sell a universe of possibilities: any look, any identity. For their clients to ‘see’ themselves in a virtual mirror, Luxe is developing an intelligent match-making and modelling product that will enable personalized recommendations and a digital crystal ball into how they might look wearing this or that wig. There’s no question that trends toward an increasingly digital marketplace mark this as a project to watch. We’re extremely glad to provide computing support to power this project!

Behind Essence Luxe Couture is another remarkable story: that of Akosua Asare, CEO & Founder, ‘multitasking momma’, and visionary entrepreneur. Ms. Asare recently appeared on Dragon’s Den to pitch Essence Luxe Couture to the panel. We’re very pleased to share this link and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
