Adobe Unveil Next Generation of Creative Cloud and Applications

At the recent MAX 2017, Adobe unveiled a slew of new and updated Creative Cloud applications. At the core of the updates, stands Adobe Sensei.

Adobe Sensei is Adobe’s machine learning and artificial intelligence that powers the applications released. Adobe Sensei is said to enable “image matching across millions of assets to understanding the meaning and sentiment of documents to finely targeting important audience segments.”

Adobe Sensei is directly responsible for enabling all the applications unveiled at MAX 2017. Check out the brief description as follow;

  • Adobe XD CC: Developed in open partnership with the design community through a public beta, Adobe XD is the all-in-one cross-platform solution for designing and prototyping mobile apps and websites. Created by designers for designers, Adobe XD delivers the necessary speed, precision and quality to go from static comps or wireframes to fully interactive prototypes in minutes.
