We all are very fond of Google doodles aren’t we? And now, the company has an artificial intelligence program that can translate our drawings into art.
Announced yesterday, Autodraw is a new web-based tool by Google that interprets quick sketches and replaces them with improved drawings. The artificial intelligence program seeks to recognize what you are drawing and shows similar drawing optioms to replace yours with.
Of course, the purpose of the tool is ‘to help make drawing and creating a little more accessible and fun for everyone’. You can simply start by drawing a bicycle, or a house, or a cat and the algorithm tries to figure out what it is that you’re trying to draw. Then it tries to match your drawings in its own database and if it finds accurate matches, it’ll list them at the top of your virtual canvas.
AutoDraw is a free tool and it works on your phone, tablet, or desktop. So if you want to draw something, just doodle on your phone and it’ll be easy and understandable.
AutoDraw is the improved technology just as another Google experiment called QuickDraw, they both use the same technology but Autodraw is more advanced. Basically the Artifical Intelligence technology takes 20 seconds to recognize the sketches of users. AutoDraw is also a more creative tool that allows users to make things like coloring books or posters. However, they both have the same purpose of teaching a neural network to recognize doodles.
Google claims AutoDraw can guess a large amount of drawings and the company plans to add more in the future. Plus, if you’re an artist and would like to contribute to the project or if you would like to suggest more objects for the company to add, click here.
