Xiao-I's Virtual Try-on Technology (OOTDiffusion) Achieves Significant Breakthroughs, Attracting Industry-wide Attention and Sparking Discussions


OOTDiffusion Product is Expected to be Launched in May

SHANGHAI, April 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Xiao-I Corporation (NASDAQ: AIXI) ("Xiao-I" or the "Company"), a leading company in the field of artificial intelligence, is pleased to announce its recent significant progress in its latest product line, virtual Try-on technology (OOTDiffusion). The OOTDiffusion algorithm, independently developed by Xiao-I, was released on arXiv, an open-access repository of electronic preprints and postprints, in March 2024 (Access Paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/2403.01779).

OOTDiffusion is a new network architecture for realistic and controllable virtual try-on (VTON). Xiao-I utilizes a pre-trained latent diffusion model and designs an equipped UNet to learn the detailed features of clothing. Through the outfit fusion method proposed in the self-attention layers of the denoising UNet, precise alignment of clothing features with the target human body can be achieved without redundant deformation processes. To enhance controllability, Xiao-I introduces outfit dropping, which adjusts the intensity of clothing features during the training process without the need for a classifier. Comprehensive experiments conducted by Xiao-I on the high-quality VTON datasets demonstrate that OOTDiffusion can efficiently generate high-quality try-on results applicable to any human body and clothing image. It outperforms other VTON methods in terms of realism and controllability, marking a remarkable breakthrough in the field of virtual try-on.

OOTDiffusion has generated widespread attention and interest in the industry. On February 23, 2024, Xiao-I has released the algorithm on GitHub, an online software source code hosting platform (project homepage: https://github.com/levihsu/OOTDiffusion). As of now, the project has received approximately 4.4k stars and 620+ forks, demonstrating the high recognition and attention from the open-source community. Furthermore, the algorithm topped the "Hugging Face Paper 3.5-Day Leaderboard", a machine learning application tools development company in the United States, and sparked extensive discussions on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Xiao-I is dedicated to making changes in everyone's life with AI, driven by the increasing demand for virtual try-on technology in the market. The OOTDiffusion product is expected to be launched on Xiao-I's official website in May. This product will provide users with a brand-new dressing experience, allowing them to try different clothing styles in a virtual world using intelligent algorithms and virtual reality technology. Whether it is a source of fashion inspiration or adding fun to the shopping experience, OOTDiffusion will become an essential tool in users' lives. Xiao-I will continue to drive the development of AI technology, bringing more innovation and surprises to users. Please stay tuned for the release of the OOTDiffusion products in May by Xiao-I and enjoy the new experience brought by virtual try-on.
