From Bad Selfie to Perfect Portrait

Never take a bad selfie again with Adobe’s latest AI photo editor. The company revealed a glimpse of one of its future mobile applications developed by the artificial intelligence framework, Adobe Sensei. The concept video presents a myriad of promising photo-editing features to create the ultimate portrait: from 3D-facial mapping to automatic portrait masking and style transfers.

In the last 67 years, Barbie has been presidential candidate, doctor, scientist, chef, musician, astronaut, architect, computer engineering and now she’s becoming a 3D-animated hologram personal assistant for your kid.
