Levi’s Finds Artificial Accountants, Ripped Denim More Fashionable Than the Real Thing

Levi’s CFO Harmit Singh told The Wall Street Journal that “We are introducing bots where it makes sense,” and “The idea is not to eliminate jobs. We are going to upskill employees and have them spend more time on analysis.” Yes, yes, the humans will do the really valuable stuff which, by the way, does NOT include making the jeans look fashionably shabby:

The move mirrors Levi’s recent push to use lasers to create the holes, fraying and fading to give jeans a worn look, and replace a labor-intensive hand-finishing process.

I hope Levi’s can incorporate some artificially intelligent baby puke stains in a future line of jeans. I’m getting tired of explaining those.
