Have you ever thought what it would be like to use an app like Siri, but for photo editing? Judging from Adobe’s latest video, this might become reality. They are exploring what an intelligent digital assistant for photo editing might look like, and they presented their idea in this short video.
The concept combines the technology and intelligence. It includes modern technology of voice interaction, and deep understanding of both creative workflows and creative aspirations of users. Adobe claims that their speech recognition system can directly accept natural user voice instructions for image editing. You can give them either locally through on-device computing, or through a cloud-based Natural Language understanding service.
For now, this is only the first step towards creating a voice-based interface, but we’ll hopefully soon get the chance to try it out ourselves.
Now, I remember using speech recognition software to do my texts, because I needed a way to speed things up. It didn’t last long. I had the urge to use my keyboard not only to type over the mistakes, but also to bang my head against it. So I can’t imagine myself using a voice-based digital assistant for photo editing. But I would try it out for fun, because I’m curious. How about you? Do you trust your hands more than your voice? Or you can’t wait to let the voice assistant do the work?
