In order to provide a platform for people to be able to come up with fairly perfect shapes and curves in their sketches, Google recently introduced ‘Google Autodraw’, a new application powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, to reconstruct sketches drawn by people and turn them into professional creations.
Google, the American multinational technology company specialising in internet-related services and products including search, cloud computing, software and hardware, among others, recently launched another software named ‘Google Autodraw’ powered by its Artificial Intelligence (AI) to convert hand drawn doodles into professionally drawn figures. The new platform lets the user draw a shape and then predicts what the user wants to draw by presenting a selection of pre-drawn figures to choose from.
The tool can be used as normal painting space with basic controls to draw shapes, fill them with colours or resize anything and with every stroke of the brush, the application attempts to guess what the user is trying to draw, thus perfecting the edges, shape and the curves of the original sketch.
The tool is available for smart phone, tablet and desktop users and is proving to be addictive for young sketchers who are either trying to make their mark or simply enjoying the amateur hobby.
According to Google, the system works by comparing what is being drawn with pictures that have been created by a selection of artists it has worked with. The firm’s machine learning technology has been trained on a dataset of images and is able to compare them to what is being drawn by the user.
So much so, the users can also turn these drawings into reality by using the tool’s inbuilt artificial intelligence, that is available at AutoDraw.com and is compatible with both android or iOS devices.
