Google knows that it might be difficult to draw on your computer. Thus, the company decided to come to the help of those who want to be able to make beautiful sketches on their computer and phone, too, and not only on paper. They created AutoDraw, a tool which identifies what you want to draw and replaces the doodle with a nice-looking object.
AutoDraw guesses what you wanted to draw
If drawing is not exactly your skill, this tool will allow you to entertain yourself with quick doodles which will actually look more similar to what you had in mind. Here’s how AutoDraw works. The tool is power by artificial intelligence technology which can tell what you want to draw and replaces the doodle with an image of the same object drawn by an artist.
Now you may ask, what if AutoDraw is wrong and it replaces the doodle with something else, and not what I was thinking about? Google thought about this, too. After you draw, the tool recommends you several pictures and you can choose the image you find the most pleasing.
A fun tool which improves the image recognition algorithms
Also, if your scribble is pretty intelligible, AutoDraw offers you several images of the same object drawn in different styles. Therefore, you have a variety of pictures you might choose and makes your attempt more entertaining. This can prove a lot of fun for children or for those who want to practice their artistic skills.
This new Google tool does not have many practical uses. However, it is a fun way to spend your time and it might become really popular among users. Also, Google will use this tool to collect suggestions which will help them in improving their services and offering a better experience to their users.
AutoDraw might remind you of QuickDraw, a tool where you may draw something and then tries to find out what you were thinking about. Actually, these two are related and provide data for each other. Google use them to improve and refine their algorithms used to recognize images.
