Part of Google’s new A.I. Experiments collection, AutoDraw is like an AI-powered Microsoft Paint. The app combines conventional doodling with art from professionals to enhance your doodles and help create better art.
The app works by trying to guess what you’re drawing and then offering alternatives for you to build on.
Google calls AutoDraw “a drawing tool for the rest of us;” that is, people who aren’t professional designers. What it really does is recognize what you’re trying to draw and replace that with a version drawn by an artist. The tool turned my terrible doodle of a cake that really could have been anything, and offered me this great cake instead.
AutoDraw uses the same technology in Google’s other AI-based drawing tool, QuickDraw to guess what you’re trying to draw. While far from professional design software, AutoDraw as an intuitive quick and easy way to make cards and flyers.
AutoDraw can also be used as a regular canvas tool without the AI component, a lot like MS Paint but much sleeker. It’s useful for any quick art needs you may have, and it’s a ton of fun. You can try AutoDraw here.
