Adobe is reportedly developing a new software that is capable of designing websites by utilizing the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Evidently, this is a step forward for software technology, but what does it mean for website designers?
It is well known that Adobe is, in fact, one of the world's largest software companies. Famous for dishing out breakthrough software that aids designers in their work, namely the likes of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
In the realm of website design, Adobe has software like Adobe Dreamweaver that paves the way fro website designers and developers to do their magic. However, the said powerful company is reportedly creating a new software that is capable of designing website, thus possible overtaking the tasks of the designer, Fast Codesign reported.
Normally, designers are in charge of choosing the color schemes, the layout and overall theme of the website. They are also the one's who crop the photos and arrange them on the site. However, this new unnamed software will make designing a website easier for users at large-enterprise customers.
Adobe's new software is designed to automatically analyze all the input then proceeds with recommending a design for the user. Technologies used to make this possible include image recognition, automated photo editing.
All this information at first glance may seem threatening for those properly in the field of graphic design, web design and web development. The fear of an AI taking over the market, rendering demand for the profession to decline may be felt by some artists.
However, according to Steve Hammond, senior director of product of Adobe marketing Cloud reassures designers that they have nothing to worry about. Apparently, machine learning only helps automate the time-consuming tasks that designers have to go through, it is yet to be capable of dealing with subjective matters. The latter still heavily requires human skill in order to perform subjective tasks, which is required to dish out a unique design.
