Adobe’s New Sensei for Smartphones solves the problems smartphone users have when trying to read PDF’s on their devices. Recently, Adobe rolled out a new AI-based feature dubbed “Sensei” which automatically reformats the text images and tables in the PDF format.
A spokesman for the company said, “Giving people tools to view and extract content from PDFs, without changing the PDF itself, will help everyone gain more insight and power from the trillions of PDFs housed in enterprise storage systems, PCs, mobile devices, and on the web.”
“Delivering exceptional digital experiences is our mission, and we’ve been working in service of our customers to do just that for more than three decades. From the introduction of PDF in the early 1990s to unleashing it as an open standard in 2008, to the debut of Liquid Mode today, we continue to define how the world works with digital documents, both personally and professionally.”
The new capabilities should already be available on the Adobe Acrobat Reader for iOS and Android. They will eventually be rolling out to Chromebooks, other desktop PCs, and ultimately, web browsers too.
PDFs are among the most ubiquitous types of documents found on the web, and anything that makes reading them easier on a wide range of devices is an excellent thing.
