Magic Sketchpad helps you turn circles into cats and lines into trucks.
2018's been a good year for AI - Adobe CC 2019 was propelled by the Sensei neural network (impressive) and Julian Glander's bringing out an AI-powered 'art school' game next year (fun).
A range of drop down selections lets the AI know what you want it to draw, for example cats and trucks, and, err, crabrabbitfacepigs and 'antyoga.' Someone's definitely been having fun training this thing.
Happy Monday! Here’s a ✨magical doodling app✨ I just built!— Monica Dinculescu (@notwaldorf) December 17, 2018
It uses Magenta’s SketchRNN model to complete a doodle you start — try drawing some cats, or some cats AND a truck on the same page!
Show me your robot arts!!!

The software stems from Magenta’s SketchRNN model, which Monica has adapted and placed in a nice bright pink interface that'll remind you of the pre-AI days of Microsoft Paint.
It's not a perfect science; the network doesn't seem like to drawing big, so expect small leaves on your palm tree trunk, and it's also a bit confusing if it prefers you to sketch out a body first as opposed to faces for its animals, but it's a nice way to get to grips with this artistic artificial intelligence everyone is talking about.
