Well, I have not a lot to say, the title says it all.

Affinity line of products have great tools and impressive functions but I strongly and deeply believe it is time for the thing to get an Ai.

There are great benefits from implementing Ai with deep learning.

Resize, crop, selection, tone map, snap, resources management to only list these can get great benefits from it.

Even most common tools such as pen tool, fill tool, transparency tool, defringe, haze removal, live perspective, blend/replica tool etc can benefit from it to.

Devs should think about and put something on the rails, please don't the 100% ready route implement step by step, tools by tools and have us to work with it and revert telling how it is doing so you can better it and deliver a top notch or next plus ultra software line of products.

 

Blessings !

Ai is the name for the three-toed maned sloth, and it’s also a common abbreviation (used by Adobe themselves) for Adobe Illustrator, but from the context I think you must mean AI, or artificial intelligence. I don’t think the Affinity suite is ready for this, apart from perhaps a limited application of heuristics in some areas.

Dear you made me laugh so loud i couldn't breath !
Was in fact talking artificial intelligence ... not Artificial illustration :D !

Note that i said Serif team should bring progressively onto the suite, a step by step implementation is better than a one time load which often result in the whole thing getting broken.
But at this stage like i said, few stuffs would benefit of it such as the content aware fill, fill tool, pen tool all snap functionalities.
Making Affinity to be capable of learning from its users is a good thing, then shared stuffs would contain knowledge acquired from other experienced users who have made their Affinity even intelligent. it will transform the resource sharing by buying or installing a brush the user would benefit from new level of intelligence and reactivity.
i'm just thinking out loud, maybe this too much Sci-Fi but i think it is possible !

Can't believe i just put this together and proposed Serif to implement a kind of neuronal network for all Affinity instances installed over the world to share knowledges and grow in intelligence !
Maybe too much watching of Terminator or Tony Stark made me think of such technology ... but i admit it would be great and good.
Just need to avoid fall into the Matrix world. :D

Well there actually isn't much intelligence in artificial intelligence, instead it's more like finding matches and similarities in huge data nets. The whole is somehow currently massively overvalued (sort of hype syndrome or being en vogue, due to cloud computing and co.) - Cut the internet connection and ask Siri/Alexa/Cortana (or any other artificial girl ;)) something grandiloquent...

What exactly is AI going to do for you with the pen and fill tools?

 

Personally, I don't want a tool that would predict what I want. I just want it to be deterministic and constant.
