In an effort to delve more into the creative industries, IBM Watson and Marchesa have teamed up to create a stunning dress for the Met Gala. At first glance, the gorgeous gown may look like something out of a fairy tale, but when worn it becomes something much more futuristic. The floral details are embedded with LEDs in order to change color at the command of the supercomputer.

IBM Watson and Marchesa essentially create the perfect costume for the highly anticipated fashion event. Fast Company reports that "the algorithm powering the dress relies on Watson Color Theory, which links emotions to colors, and on the Watson Tone Analyzer, a service that can detect emotion in text."
