Artificial intelligence inside Adobe Creative Cloud could soon help creatives, well, spend more time being creative. At Adobe's 2016 MAX Conference, which starts on November 2, the company announced a new framework for Creative Cloud using artificial intelligence, called Adobe Sensei. Along with the new AI additions, Adobe unveiled several new programs and updates that show where the design software giant is headed in the next several months. Highlights of the company's first-day announcements include enhanced virtual reality tools inside Adobe Premiere Pro, design tools for merging 2D and 3D design, expansion of the Adobe Stock platform, and several other Creative Cloud updates from Adobe Experience Design to Photoshop. Adobe Sensei is expected to take the artificial intelligence that Adobe is already using – like facial recognition and the content-aware tools inside Photoshop, for example – and leverage additional machine learning techniques to automate the more mundane tasks inside the Creative Cloud, Adobe Document Cloud, and Adobe Marketing Cloud.
Leveraging its machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning capabilities, software major Adobe Systems has unveiled Adobe Sensei -- a new framework and set of intelligent services that improve the design and delivery of digital experiences -- at its ongoing annual creativity conference here. Adobe "Sensei", which means "master" or "teacher" in Japanese, tackles complex experience challenges, including image matching across millions of images, understanding the meaning and sentiment of documents and finely targeting important audience segments. "Adobe Sensei is uniquely focused on solving today's complex experience challenges in the design, document and marketing fields, where only Adobe has decades of expertise and market leadership," Shantanu Narayen, President and CEO of Adobe said on Wednesday. "Leveraging our machine learning and AI capabilities, as well as trillions of content and data assets, Adobe Sensei will be one of our biggest strategic investments. We're excited to open it up to our broader ecosystem of partners, ISVs and developers to enable even more innovation," he added.
At Adobe Summit, Adobe (Nasdaq:ADBE) introduced significant enhancements to the Adobe Cloud Platform, the underlying, cross-cloud architecture that unifies content and data and leverages Adobe Sensei, Adobe's AI and machine learning framework. Advancements announced today include new Sensei capabilities for enterprise customers as well as new tools and partner integrations to help developers reduce time to market and better integrate Creative Cloud assets into enterprise workflows. Adobe also announced Adobe Experience Cloud (see separate press release) as well as the availability of the first set of solutions that integrate with Microsoft's Azure, Dynamics 365 and PowerBI offerings (see separate press release). Advancements in cloud services have fundamentally altered the computing landscape. The next decade will bring even more disruptive changes in how brands create, immerse and engage their customers in their experiences.
Adobe on Wednesday introduced two new platforms that bring machine learning, artificial intelligence and 3D image design to its cloud portfolio. First up, the creative software giant rolled out Sensei, which it describes as "a framework and set of intelligent services built into the Adobe Cloud Platform." Adobe says it's been using machine learning and AI in its creative applications for years, with tools such as Facial Recognition, and the Content-Aware fill in Photoshop. Sensei extends across the technology across all of Adobe's cloud properties, including Creative Cloud, Adobe Document Cloud and Adobe Marketing Cloud. Adobe is also committing to "significantly increase" its investment in the development of new services within Sensei that will span the Adobe Cloud Platform.
