  Adobe Shows Off Own Digital Assistant © Provided by IBT US Adobe announced back in November that it was investing in artificial intelligence research to further advance its creative suite of software. Yesterday, the company published a video showing what it’s planning to do with its own AI digital assistant.

The 30-second clip published by Adobe shows a man using what appears to be a modified version of Photoshop Express on an iPad. The app features a microphone button on the top which allows the user to initiate the digital assistant.

In the demo, the user asked Adobe’s digital assistant, which sounds like Siri or Alexa, to crop a photo into a square, flip the photo and flip it back again. Like Google Assistant, the user is able to give out voice commands using conversational, natural language.

The user simply said “no, go back” to flip the photo back to its original state. He also said “I like it” and it prompted the AI to save the edited image. The user then gave out a voice command to post the photo to Facebook.

Although the demo video is impressive, this is just a proof of concept for now and it’s not actually a real product just yet. “Our Adobe Research team is exploring what an intelligent digital assistant photo editing might look like,” Adobe said in its video description on YouTube.

“To envision this, we combined the emerging science of voice interaction with a deep understanding of both creative workflows and the creative aspirations of our customers. Our speech recognition system is able to directly accept natural user voice instructions for image editing either locally through on-device computing or through a cloud-based Natural Language understanding service.”

Right now, its appears as though Adobe is working on the AI’s capability to perform simple tasks. In the long run, this could improve Adobe’s algorithm-based software to perform other complex automated tasks like backing up photos to the cloud or even helping in editing entire projects, according to TechCrunch.
