A while back, Google launched a fun tool called "Quick Draw
" where you drew pictures on your computer or device, and Google's AI
tried to guess what you were drawing.
Well it turns out that wasn't just a game, but was a way for Google to test out and improve the ability of its artificial intelligence to interpret doodles. One of the first applications of this has now been released in the form of AutoDraw
is a very simple and easy to use drawing tool
, with most of the normal features such as drawing, filling colors, resizing, adding text, and more. However, there is one big twist. AutoDraw includes Google's artificial intelligence
to help you draw by taking your squiggles and doodles, and offering to replace them with professional images.
Can't draw a dog? If you can sort of doodle a poodle, AutoDraw will try to recognize what you drew and let you replace your questionable canine with a cute clipart version.
See below for more details
about AutoDraw and how it works, as well as ideas
for how teachers and students could use this tool for creating and learning.
