Adobe Is Looking Into The Possibility Of A Voice Activated Virtual Assistant

Adobe Photoshop is probably one of the most powerful editing software. But it is big and complicated and not everyone can handle it -not even its toned-down Elements version. Adobe Systems have a solution in the mind, though, to make it as newbie-friendly as possible: a voice-activated digital assistant.

Yesterday, Adobe released a 30-second teaser video that asks, ‘What if you had an intelligent assistant for photo editing?’ The company is looking into possibility of a voice-activated virtual assistant that edits and shares your photos. Think Siri, but for the Photoshop.

The video depicts a modified version of one of Adobe’s photo apps that features a microphone button, which activates a digital assistant that interacts with the user and helps crop, reframe, and share the picture entirely though voice commands.

While many mobile users might satisfied with the swiping and tapping gestures in use now, a development like this might could come as good news to individuals that want the interface of desktop photo-editing software without the need for constant precision mousing.

The video is a proof of concept for the idea, which Adobe hopes will enable for ‘image editing either locally through on-device computing or through a cloud-based Natural Language understanding service.’ While edits being done are relatively simple, it is easy to imagine how Adobe could build out the system for automating more complex tasks. The company is setting a high goal for project, noting that it is merely ‘a first step’ toward a voice-based interface that will include a search function alongside editing tools.

Adobe is yet to confirm whether this project is close to fruition only that it’s ‘exploring what an intelligent digital assistant photo editing might look like.’ You will have to wait to see when this technology is incorporated into Adobe apps.
