In all honesty I don't use Illustrator very often I'm mostly a pixel person (PSD/AE). I have to admit though more and more I'm seeing "Ai" used over and over and I can't tell if the person in the creative blog is posting something regarding Adobe Illustrator or Artificial Intelligence. I don't think AI is going anywhere and I don't think Adobe will have the ability to claim copyright infringement, so I think a name change might be in order.
The lastest message in my email box: "Workshop: New Ai Tools for Video". So which is it? I had to click through 3 screens and still was given no answer, but since automation became the so subject matter I think it's probably the latter.
Regardless, the definitioin is losing clarity.
I think you can mostly discern it by context. Illustrator has never played a role in video editing workflows (as a video tool), so that might give you an indication.
Well, it's Ai VS A.I.
if anything, the people talking about artificial intelligence would be graced to learn that an acronym has to be written a certain way in order to be intelligible.
I don't know why Adobe decided to shorten Adobe Illustrator with a lower case i, maybe that was to distinguish it from Artificial intelligence? The term is not novel by any means (1955 apparently, so Illustrator wasn't even an idea)
Pedantry, I hear you say! 🤣
Still, If I were Adobe, I wouldn't budge ...
I actually agree with you. It's the best way culturally to adapt in terms of "branding etymology".

Surely you can't blame that on Adobe.
I'd agree the developing overlap is unfortunate, but I have serious doubt Adobe will find it constitutes a business case to change the name.
We shall see...Mwahahaha.
Adobe Illustrator has 35 years of established history. That's a really long history to consider when it comes to requesting a brand name change simply because the pop culture zeitgeist is obessing over "artificial intelligence."
By the way, Illustrator is a useful tool for video production. After Effects and Premiere Pro can import vector content from Illustrator and even put it into motion.
Hi Bobby, just wanted to say that I meant it never played a role as a video tool per se. Of course it is great for creating assets that can be used in video production. I use it myself extensively.
