    With the advent of an AI-based surveillance society, we humans are digitizing all everyday behavior. They are identified as race, gender, age, and human, and their information is exploited for efficiency. For this reason, we propose "21st century camouflage clothing" that is not labeled "human" from the eyes of AI. Thinking about camouflage in modern times, we made camouflage clothing as a jacket that sampled the history of military.

    SECOND EPOCH

     

    FIRST EPOCH

    With the development of AI technology using deep learning, a surveillance society using AI has arrived. Excessive surveillance and privacy threatened by humans living today. Therefore, we take advantage of the weakness of AI's image recognition and propose "21st century camouflage clothing" to protect privacy from the eyes of AI. It learned specific patterns so that the percentage of people identified as "persons" by the image recognition model was reduced, and created camouflage clothing as tops based on the generated images.
